Current Research

The molecules that can form in space are interesting, complex, and often difficult to generate under terrestrial conditions. The goal of my research involves figuring out ways to not just create these molecules, but keep them around long enough to collect a rotational spectrum. We utilize the O(1D) insertion technique so that we can readily insert oxygen into C-H bonds before isolating the molecules in a supersonic expansion. I personally am also interested in the computational/theoretical aspects of physical chemistry, and since many of our target molecules don't have any experimental groundwork having a grip on computational chemistry is incredibly beneficial to the development of working predictions. Although most of my time as a member of the group has been assisting the amino methanol project, I've done many predictions and computation work towards future prebiotic molecules we hope to create using this technique.
