Research Interests

  • Lipid self-assembly in structures including model membranes, monolayers, liosomes, and structures formed by bicellar materials

  • Phase behaviour and dynamics of lipidic materials

  • Protein-lipid interactions particularly with relevance to lung surfactant function

  • Response of lipid assemblies to perturbations including hydrostatic pressure

    Primary Tools

  • Solid-state NMR particularly 2H NMR

  • Differential scanning calorimetry
