My research focuses on the behaviour of minerals, heterogeneous catalysts and other metal oxide materials, such as polyoxometalates, at the interface with water and other small molecules.
Structural Biology based on X-ray Crystallographic Methods
We study how the chemical structure of metal compounds control mechanisms and kinetics for reactions which are central for the cycling of metals in the environment.
My research group has a long-standing interest in spectrin and spectrin-like proteins, such as α-actinin. The major aim is to understand the structural and functional roles of these proteins.
My reserach deals with bacterial interactions with surfaces
My research aims at developing methods for identifying chemicals of environmental and human health concern and to explore their mode of action by combining computational and experimental tools.
