Areas of interest

We are interested in studying nature's own border patrol - the cell membrane. We study the physical behavior of lipid molecules in model membranes using deuterium nuclear magnetic resonance (2H NMR) spectroscopy. We want to understand the nano-scale molecular interactions that lipids have with each other and their environment.
