Ph.D., Purdue University(2009)
B.S., Saint Olaf College, Northfield, MN (2001)

Research Interests:

My research interests are in ion properties and reactivity as a result of ion interactions with other ions, molecules, and physical processes. I am especially interested in these interactions with biological molecular ions for use in biological studies. The continued development of novel instrumentation to facilitate these experiments is also extremely interesting as new questions can be successfully answered as the result of instrumentation development.
