Research Areas:
organic radicals

I have worked with Dr. Phillip D. Morse at the Steppingstone Magnetic Resonance Training Center and utilized the concept of Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectrometry and used a Spectrometer to analyze the effects of environmental factors on the antioxidant properties of beer as a function of time using the molecules TEMPOL and PBN. I would like to join the SharedEPR network to collaborate with other labs and so that I can take my research further.

Research Areas:
catalysis, energy materials, enzymes, instrumentation / methods development, nitroxides, soluble proteins

The biophysics research in my laboratory in the Department of Physics at Emory University focuses on elucidation of the fundamental contributions of molecular structure and dynamics to assembly and reactivity in protein systems, by using time-resolved and cw-EPR methods and unique low-T systems. EPR instrumentation includes a home-constructed X- and Ku-band pulsed-EPR spectrometer and a Bruker E500 X- and Q-band CW-EPR spectrometer (EPR & ENDOR).

EPR Techniques:
cw EPR, EPR oxymetry, imaging

Research Areas:
diagnostics / imaging, education, enzymes, instrumentation / methods development, nitroxides

My research focuses on the role of O2, free radicals and oxidative stress in brain injury and treatments for neurological disorders and diseases. Moreover, I play a key role in the advancement of EPR to enhance the detection, identification and quantification of free radicals and O2 in biology. My motivation for joining the SharedEPR network is to foster collaborations with scientists from varying disciplines to find solutions to scientific questions using EPR technology.

EPR Techniques:
cw EPR, EPR theory and simulation, high-field EPR, pulse EPR, THz EPR

Research Areas:
instrumentation / methods development, lanthanides, membrane proteins, nitroxides

My research focuses on developing high-field (240 GHz) EPR instrumentation and methodologies. The experiment I work on is based around the UCSB mm-wave free electron laser (FEL) as a source of high power microwave radiation, to perform pulsed EPR at high field with short pulse lengths. In addition, I study high-field relaxation mechanisms in nitroxides and in gadolinium centers. I am interested broadening my knowledge of EPR techniques, and in connecting with my colleges.

DNP

Research Areas:
organic radicals

My research project now is interested in DNP technology, especially dissolution DNP. we try to use nano-scale beads which involve radicals inside to work for DNP, when combine with radicals such as BDPA, nanobeads can be very helpful to polarize materials without glassing solvent. I have the passion to continue my research project, which means I need more knowledge outside my university. So participate in the SharedEPR can really help me to my future research work.
