Research interests are at the interface of chemical physics and chemistry with wide applications of solution and solid-state NMR. They include currently weak proton-hydride bonding as organizing interaction in proton transfer and molecular aggregations and nuclear magnetic relaxation in porous silica-based materials particularly in paramagnetic solids.
