Spectroscopy in its various forms (NMR, EPR) and mass spectrometry (MS) has been the major focus of my research for many years, and I am the NMR Facility Manager of the Chemistry Department with solution-state NMR, and solid-state NMR, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) expertise. Previously I have managed NMR, MS, and HPLC facilities. I have been involved in a wide range of projects, such as enhanced oil recovery, bio-oils, the structure determination of polymers (biopolymers, proteins, synthetic polymers), analysis of food (e.g., milk, kiwifruit, protein digestion, lipids, fatty acid composition of oils, bioactive substances), soils, RNA (picornavirus replication), protein binding, (Antarctic) algae, determination of the volume of the blood of rabbits and pigs, diagnostic methodologies for diseases, ferroeletrics, rocks, radiation dosimetry, history and philosophy of science. A lot of my research has been in collaboration.
