RFA: Detection & Identification

Research: DOM Isomeric Complexity

Adviser: Francisco Fernandez-Lima

Joined CREST CAChE in Summer 2018

My research interest involves developing new analytical methods for the characterization of complex organic mixtures at the molecular level such as DOM from subtropical wetlands and emissions and byproducts from energy consumption in urban areas.  Specifically, my goal is to integrate tandem high-resolution trapped ion mobility spectrometry and ultra high-resolution mass spectrometry (TIMS-FT-ICR MS/MS) for structural identification.
