Current Activities and Projects
Development of in-vivo metabolomics technologies (instrumentation and methods) based upon nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, imaging and spectroscopic imaging. Application of these technologies to the characterization of microbiological biofilms and suspended cell systems.
Applied NMR spectroscopy and imaging of synthetic materials, including hydrogen (PEM) fuel cells.
Basic and applied NMR (imaging, spectroscopy, microscopy, diffusion, flow)
and combined optical/NMR techniques for the characterization of biological and material samples.
Development of combined optical-and-magnetic resonance microscopy for biological studies;
NMR (imaging and flow) techniques development for advanced material studies;
Porous material studies.
