My research background focuses on the fundamental development of liquid chromatography (LC) columns in capillaries and microfluidic devices. LC columns are at the heart of many analytical separation techniques across pharmaceutical, environmental, and biomedical research projects. Early work focused on the physical structure of the packed chromatographic bed inside a fused silica capillary and led to strategies that could be used to pack more efficient columns in capillaries and also miniaturized microfluidic devices. Other interests have included understanding the physical processes beyond bed structure that impact column performance (included extra-column effects and frictional heating) and applying LC and mass spectrometry (MS) instrumentation to solve analytical problems in neuroscience and molecular physiology.
