Welcome to the Chen Mass Spectrometry Research Lab

Our research interest is broad and we are working on mass spectrometry, electrochemistry, proteomics and organic chemistry for solving probelms in chemical, biological, environmental and forensic science. In Particular, our research focuses on absolute quantitation of proteins and organic compounds without the need of standards, using combined electrochemistry and mass spectrometry. We also study reaction mechanisam with interest on elusive reaction intermediate detection. In addition, we develop method for detection of PFAS, nanoplastics and nitrosamines.
