Our research focuses on understanding the structure/function relationship on nucleic acids and protein-nucleic acid complexes. We develop a biophysical tool, called site-directed spin labeling (SDSL), to probe structural and dynamics of nucleic acids, and we combine SDSL and other biochemical and biophysical approaches to investigate specific systems that function in fundamental biological processes.

I am a condensed matter experimentalist specializing in Terahertz science and technology (0.1-10 THz). I am also director of UC Santa Barbara's Institute for Terahertz Science and Technology (ITST). We have at UCSB a home-built 240 GHz EPR spectrometer that can run in cw and pulsed modes. In pulsed mode, we can run either with ~50 mW pulses from a solid-state source, or several hundred Watts from a Free-Electron Laser. We welcome visitors and collaborators in the wonderful EPR community!
