Role & Interests

The advancement of mass spectrometric techniques and their application to the solution of complex biological problems, particularly applied to the analysis of small molecules and metabolites; development of methods for metabolite profiling (metabolomics) and targeted (quantitative) metabolite analysis for specific applications; development of LC and sample preparation procedures to facilitate the MS analysis of small molecules in biological fluids; application of modern mass spectrometric methods, such as accurate mass measurement using FT-ICR and elemental composition calculations to identify unknown small molecules;incorporation of new advances in mass spectrometry, such as Desorption Electrospray Ionisation, into our laboratory and routine usage.
