Welcome to the Fournier Lab!
We design and implement new techniques which combine the sensitivity and selectivity of mass spectrometry with the time resolution of ultrafast spectroscopies to capture and interrogate fast chemical reactions with molecular-level detail, offering new insight into reaction mechanisms that are too challenging to study with standard methods.
We’ve gone cryo and our ions are soaking up N2 tags!
We have recorded our first CIVS spectrum!
We’re making great progress on the 2D IR set up and now have a working interferometer.
Joe’s postdoctoral work exploring the hydration structures of the aqueous proton using ultrafast broadband 2D IR spectroscopy in now out in Nature Chemistry!
Check out our research goals and experimental methods to see what we’ll be publishing on in the near future!
