Research interests

My speciality and area of research is the application of mass spectrometry to the analysis of natural products and complex organic molecules - especially by using electrospray ionisation and collision induced dissociation tandem and sequential mass spectrometry. One of the goals of this research is the rationalisation of fragmentation mechanisms by computational methods and the modelling of multi-step pathways.

I am also generally interested in all areas of modern mass spectrometry. I have active research projects in areas such as: improving existing mass spectrometry methodologies, the analysis of inorganic complexes, studying the application and development of novel matrices for matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation and developing improved methods for the analysis of complex mixtures (e.g. oils or metabolic extracts).
