Solving crystal structures and developing methods to enable more routine structure solution from nanocrystals.

Collaborations include groups from around the globe, Switzerland, Greece, USA, Germany, Japan, and Ireland, new collaborators always welcome.

Types of crystals handled range from Geological, Minerals phases, to Metal Organic Frameworks (MOF’s) and Covalent Organic Frameworks (COF’s) to Proteins.
