Main areas of research interest

  • Solid-State NMR Spectroscopy technique development
  • Study of amyloid proteins

Laboratory Equipment

Special equipment, which is not generally available in most laboratories:

NMR spectrometers (one dedicated spectrometer operating at 600 MHz and 50% access to an 800 MHz spectrometer, and 33% access to another 600 MHz spectrometer) equipped with MAS probeheads for high-resolution solid-state NMR spectroscopy.

Non-standard methods, which are established in the laboratory:

Solid-State NMR-spectroscopy at high fields, technique development and application.
