Analytical and Physical Chemistry, biological mass spectrometry, separation of complex mixtures, quantitative proteomics, directed metabolite analysis.
In my laboratory, experimental work is being conducted in the area of mass spectrometry and NMR. We develop new methods to determine the bioactive components from dietary botanical supplements. We are also interested in biological systems at the protein level, as well as, quantitatively measuring targeted metabolites in a variety of matrices.
