Our research centers on the development and application of solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy for the characterization of materials and pharmaceuticals. In particular, we use state of the art high field dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) to enhance the sensitivity of solid-state NMR experiments by several orders of magnitude. This enables application of NMR to previously inaccessible systems and can dramatically improve structure elucidation. Researchers in my group will primarily work with NMR spectroscopy, however, they also gain experience in other characterization and modeling techniques such as EPR spectroscopy, quantum chemical calculations, X-ray diffraction, and other characterization techniques.
