The SMART Center provides training in EPR to middle and high school students. Essential to this process is the basic
understanding of solid experimental design and
legitimate data collection and analysis as well as
the ability to draw valid conclusions. Students plan their own research projects and generate original data with the potential for presentation to the scientific community.

EPR Techniques:
DNP

Research Areas:
inorganic semiconductors

My research interests are centered around inorganic solid state semiconductors, namely GaAs and AlGaAs multiple quantum well films. My group will often strain these materials by bonding them to materials which have different lattice constants and lowering the temperature. We are able to dynamically polarize nuclei through the application of laser light and study the enhanced polarization via ordinary NMR. I want to join the Shared EPR network in order to learn about the research advances in EPR.

Research Areas:
drug development, membrane proteins

Allosteric drugs have the ability to fine-tune cellular response and direct cell signaling towards a particular pathway for the largest class of druggable proteins, G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). I use continuous wave and DEER EPR spectroscopies to study GPCRs in the presence of allosteric ligands, to identify the mechanism of the allosteric response, and inform future rational drug design.

, electrons on helium

Our lab's research is focused on understanding the physics of materials and structures with extremely long electron spin coherence. One of the main applications is the development of devices for quantum simulation and quantum computing. Long coherence requires very dilute systems, pushing the limits of sensitivity and stability. Some of the experiments must be run at milliKelvin temperatures and microwatt power levels, for which we are developing superconducting microresonators.

We are examining EPR for use as a real-time sensor of multi-phase fluids (namely crude oil with some salty water, gas, and dissolved solids). We have hand-built a rough-and-ready EPR machine but we can surely benefit from lessons learned by the community. Main challenges we face are signal-to-noise and system calibration over a broad operating range (our incoming fluids can be up to 5ksi and 120degC).

I took over the position of Assistant Director at the Magnetic Resonance Center (MRC) at BC last year, and the majority of my duties are centered on assisting students with their experiments on our EMX-Plus EPR spectrometer. I have been assisting students with acquiring routine EPR spectra of organic radicals and nitroxides, as well as guiding them through the process of EPR simulations, as I concurrently hone the art myself.
