Asif's main focus is method development and application of solid-state dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) enhanced NMR to study biosolids, in particular aggregation intermediates of Tau proteins. In addition to this, understanding electron spin dynamics under non-continuous microwave irradiation condition is another major goal in the pursuit of improving DNP efficiency in power limited and faster magic-angle spinning frequency regime.

Yann's research focuses on protein aggregation which is involved in many diseases, such as Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease, and others. His aim is to understand why proteins aggregate and to explain how the complex process of aggregation takes place. Yann is particularly interested in the earliest stages of aggregation.

Sheetal's research focuses on the methods, development, and applications of DNP and NMR. His doctoral focus was in solid-state NMR, and now he has been working with pulsed DNP methods to improve the technique he used during his doctoral program. Presently, he is involved primarily in projects related to the instumentation and applications of DNP and NMR.

Tim's aim is to use recently developed arbitrarily waveform generators to improve the current pulsed EPR experiments such as DEER, DQC, and SIFTER. He also aims to make potentially more effective experiments possible. The primary application of his work is to look at distances across proteins particularly for aggregating systems. He is trying to improve the study of distances on aggregating systems, especially on the model system of tau protein.
