We are an interdisciplinary research group that develops and applies new optical methodologies to study (bio)molecular structure and dynamics. A particular focus rests on the use of light scattering to visualise and quantify the energetics and kinetics protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions all the way from small molecules to mesoscopic structures at the single molecule level. Central to these efforts is the universality of light scattering, making it applicable to all forms of matter and its close correlation with mass, which provides direct information on molecular identity. The result is a comparatively low-resolution combination of cryo-EM and native mass spectrometry, but with the distinct advantage of dynamic solution operation and single molecule sensitivity and imaging.
