My research interests focus on two overall themes: integration of multiple structural biological techniques to develop a comprehensive understanding of functional macromolecular complexes, and development of instrumentation to improve the tools available for such studies. Techniques of interest include synchrotron protein footprinting, x-ray absorption spectroscopy, small-angle x-ray scattering, cryo-electron microscopy, x-ray crystallography, infrared microspectroscopy, biochemical kinetic studies of enzymes and computational modeling. I am currently the on-site lead in the effort to develop a world-leading program in x-ray footprinting at the NSF-CWRU funded beamline XFP (X-ray Footprinting for In Vitro and In Vivo Structural Studies of Biological Macromolecules) currently being constructed at NSLS-II. I am also involved in development of detectors, including x-ray beam imaging diagnostics as well as ion beam diagnostics; we are also currently exploring the application of these technologies to therapeutic dosimetry.
