Fields of interest: application of synchrotron radiation to structural biology including: structure-function relationships of biological molecules, mechanisms of enzymatic activities (including stereoselective enzymatic reactions), penetration of biological membranes, rational drug design and drug delivery systems, development and refinement of synchrotron-based phase determination techniques as well as synchrotron instrumentation

Techniques: chemical crystallography, macromolecular crystallography (MX), powder diffraction, small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS).
