  • Use of optical spectroscopies, including (resonance) Raman and magnetic circular dichroism, electron paramagnetic and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopies.
  • Handling, preparation, and analysis of biological samples, with special emphasis on spectroscopic studies of metalloenzymes.
  • Synchrotron based X-ray spectroscopies, including X-ray absorption and XAFS. Experience with the analysis of a wide variety of inorganic, organometallic, and metalloenzyme samples by these techniques.
  • Handling, characterization, and preparation of radioactive materials, including both long- and short- lived isotopes and samples of high activity.
  • Synthesis and characterization of organic, inorganic, and organometallic compounds.
  • Experience with computational chemistry methodologies, including density functional theory (DFT), ab initio, and molecular mechanics (MM). Emphasis on calculation of spectroscopic properties of inorganic and bioinorganic systems.
