Jessica Clayton

Graduate Student Researcher

Office Location

Jointly advised by Mark Sherwin (Physics)


Jessica's research focuses on high field electron paramagnetic resonance for the study of biological systems. This research helps build a better understanding of the processes that are important for the systems of spins at high field, aiming to develop new methods for styding biological systems. Jessica is currently developing a new tool for measuring distances in membrane proteins that will enhance their study of protein structure and dynamics. Under Mark Sherwin's guidance, she also helped develop the UCSB electron free laser as a tool for high field EPR.
