Personal profile

Research Focus

We are focused on developing new and improved mass spectrometry workflows to support research across Biological Sciences and further afield. 

The group has two core areas

  1. Developing new methods on LC-MS, GC-MS, ICP-MS and ambient mass spectrometry systems. 
  2. Deploying, modifying and developing new data processing workflows to support new mass spectrometry methods. 

We work closely with instrument vendors and are fortunate to be supplied with new and improved technologies which we collaborate on testing, improving and deploying in real-world situations.
