Environmental Relevant Interfaces

In the ERI group we use a combination of biochemical, and biophysical assays as well as state-of-the-art physicochemical experiments to advance our understanding of protein functions and chemical processes at environmentally relevant interfaces. Advanced spectroscopic tools such as surface-specific vibrational sum frequency generation spectroscopy allow us to detect processes in real time and directly at the relevant interfaces.
