Research Interests: 
Depsipeptides represent a plausible path as precursors of polypeptides on the early Earth. Those compounds modeled after a hypothetical primordial earth environment represent a challenge in terms of chemical analysis. Depsipeptides combinatorial systems result in multiple compositions and sequence isomers reaching the thousands. My research is focused on the development of analytical chemistry instrumentation and methodologies related with mass spectrometry to characterize those prebiotic molecules.
