Background

The major focus of my research effort at this time is development of new tools to investigate metal toxicology. Since heavy metals are persistent and accumulate in ecosystems, humanity's growing reliance on metal resources compels the development of new tools to investigate metal toxicology. Elucidation of biologically relevant heavy metal binding motifs is fundamentally critical to toxicological assessment. My research group is specifically interested in the development of new NMR methods for toxicological assessment.
