Overview

As one of three beamline scientists at BioCAT, I dabble in many areas. Most of my time is spent supporting biological small angle x-ray scattering experiments (SAXS), and maintaining and improving software and hardware at the beamline. My own areas of research are novel techniques for biological SAXS, such as cryoSAXS and TR-SAXS, and radiation damage to biological systems.
