Research Associate Professor

Research and/or Creative Works

I direct the Vermont Biomedical Research Network (VBRN, formerly VGN) Proteomics Facility with the goals of providing expertise and the latest proteomics technology to researchers and establishing an educational environment for sharing experience and knowledge in proteomics.  I work with faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students, providing guidance and support for their proteomics projects from initial experimental design, sample preparation, and instrument operation, to data analysis/interpretation and publications.  My colleagues and I maintain the operation of mass spectrometry instrumentation (LTQ linear ion trap MS, LTQ-XL-ETD linear ion trap MS, LTQ-Orbitrap Discovery MS, Q-Exactive Plus MS, and Orbitrap Fusion Tribrid MS), evaluate new technologies and software, and develop methodologies to address emerging proteomics and mass spectrometry needs.  I give seminars, guest lectures and facility tours to faculty, undergraduate and graduate students from UVM and Baccalaureate Partner Institutions.
