Personal Profile

Gregory Vansuch joined NREL as a postdoc in Paul King’s group in December 2021, where he contributed to the group’s effort of studying nitrogenase MoFe protein using a biohybrid approach until March 2022. In March 2022 he began a Postdoctoral Director’s Fellowship and works under the mentorship of Paul King and Carolyn Lubner. Vansuch uses spectroscopy and electrochemistry for understanding the properties of electron transfer cofactors in a multi-subunit enzyme that has a non-trivial electron transfer pathway, with the results having broad applicability to (bio)inorganic chemistry and biological energy transduction. Prior to joining NREL he was a doctoral student at Emory University under the mentorship of R. Brian Dyer. His dissertation focused on probing roles of second coordination sphere residues near the active site of a [NiFe]-hydrogenase. This primarily involved the use of equilibrium and transient absorption infrared spectroscopy. Aspects of the project also let him become familiar with the synthesis of dot-in-rod CdS/CdSe nanoparticles and in their use in nanoparticle-redox mediator-redox enzyme biohybrid systems.
