Research Summary/Interests

Work in my group focuses on the development and application of mass spectrometry-based tools to study proteins and proteomes. The goal of this work is to provide the necessary tools to enable the system-wide characterization of proteins expressed within a cell, tissue, biological fluid or organism, in order to better understand basic mechanisms of biological function and disease. My group also works on the Galaxy for proteomics, or Galaxy-P project, which focuses on “multi-omic” analysis integrating genomic, proteomic and metabolomic data to gain new insights into biological systems. Our work is highly interdisciplinary and collaborative, working across the fields of analytical chemistry, computer science and biochemistry. We work with numerous researchers to apply our tools and technologies to problems of biological and biomedical importance.
