My main research interests are the use XAFS and other x-ray spectroscopies using synchrotron radiation. I mostly use these for the analysis of structure and chemistry of trace elements geological and environmental sciences.
Currently, GSECARS is starting an upgrade to build a dedicated x-ray microprobe for x-ray absorption, fluorescence, and diffraction. This is taking up much of my efforts. I am also working on new versions of control and analysis software for this beamline and for general analysis of x-ray spectroscopic data.
Current topics (mostly on data collection and analysis software)
