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.
Joe’s NSF CAREER proposal has been recommended for funding!
After some fresh snowfall, the group hits the slopes at Hidden Valley!
Jessika has collected our first 2D IR spectrum!
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!
