Current research interests of the Kinsel Group include:

The synthesis and optimization of Matrix-Assisted Laser/Desorption Ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry based bioselective sensors for the discovery of novel cellular biomarkers.

The investigation of laser initiated donor to biomolecule intracluster proton transfer for the elucidation of the mechanism of MALDI analyte ionization.
