Research in Physical and Analytical Chemistry
We are interested in issues involving the nanometer length scale, ranging from the melting of size-selected clusters to weighing viruses. We are also interesting in understanding the mechanism of silica charging in sandstorms. We design instruments and develop methods to accomplish this.
