ResearchGate

Cara Lubner joined NREL in 2015.  She has technical expertise in the use of biochemical and spectroscopic techniques (ultrafast and steady state ultraviolet-visible absorption and fluorescence, electrochemistry, and electron spin resonance) to investigate mechanistic details of electron bifurcating enzymes, and the energy transduction pathways following the absorption of light energy in photosynthesis. Her broader interests lie in the integration of these fundamental insights toward improving catalytic materials and biocatalysis.
