RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT

I use nonlinear second-order vibrational sum frequency generation spectroscopy along with complimentary techniques in order to elucidate the molecular organization and inter- and intramolecular interactions of neat liquids as well as binary solvent mixtures at hydrophilic and hydrophobic solid/liquid interfaces.

It’s a great privilege to be able to conduct research as we do and to be part of this community in Buffalo, NY.

Outside the lab I enjoy sampling different kinds of beers and cocktails, cooking, eating, working out, and capturing photos of mostly landscapes.

CONGRATULATIONS THOMAS!
