I am a scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Berkeley, CA, and my research is geared towards coupling novel instruments and approaches to synchrotron radiation to perform cutting edge work in chemical physics and physical chemistry. My current interests include: lasers with synchrotron radiation to probe charge and proton transfer dynamics in solvated systems, imaging mass spectrometry/fluorescence microscopy for microbiology and developing new spectroscopic and imaging tools to probe dynamics.
I am the program lead for chemical characterization, transformations and dynamics at the Advanced Light Source in Berkeley CA, within Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Home base is the chemical dynamics beamline,
Below are snapshots of the science themes that I am interested in.
