Research interest: Our research team develops mass spectrometry approaches for surgical pathology and drug development with a focus on translating methodologies for the practice of individualized medicine and the analysis of clinical trial specimens. We further integrate our analyses with complementary studies such as phosphoproteomics, transcriptomics, cyclic immunofluorescence microscopy imaging, and MRI.
Research Interests: Prof. Fernandez’s current research interests include the field of metabolomics and the development of new ionization methods and ion mobility tools for probing composition and structure in complex molecular mixtures.
Research Interest: The leach lab at the University of Georgia focuses its research activities on the determination of molecular structure by FTMS in the context of environmental health with emphasis areas ranging from the interaction of emerging contaminants with natural organic matter and biota in wetland ecosystems to how the metabolic profile of organisms is affected by environmental exposures. The primary goal of these wide-ranging activities is to enable a more detailed understanding of environmental interactions and make a positive impact on public health.

Research interest: 1) identifying sources, transport, alterations and fate of organic compounds in the aquatic environment, 2) characterizing the composition of riverine, estuarine and marine dissolved organic matter (DOM), and 3) assessing microbial- and photochemical-derived changes in DOM composition.
Research Interests: My primary research focus is on ion control and manipulation with RF ion guides and collision cells as well as precision mass measurement with electrodynamic and electrostatic ion traps.
