Research Fellow

Biography

Nicholas received his PhD in 2014 at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and joined the Ion Innovations Lab in the Department of Physics as a research fellow shortly after.

Research | Current

My current research focuses on understanding the mixing dynamics of dual-channel nano-electrospray, and it's application to observing reaction intermedites in chemistry and biochemistry.
