My research program addresses a wide range of fundamental problems in Biophysical/Bioanalytical Chemistry. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, Attenuated Total Reflection FTIR, time-resolved step-scan FTIR, and resonance Raman are the spectroscopic tools along with high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for the investigation of basic mechanisms in Biochemistry and Food Chemistry.
