Research Interests

Dr. Forsythe’s research focuses on the chemistry of life’s origins. Specifically, his lab investigates properties and behaviors of model prebiotic peptides formed by environmental processes which may have occurred on the early Earth. Such work is expected to advance the field of origins-of-life chemistry while providing high-quality, hands-on training to undergraduates in mass spectrometry, spectroscopy, sample preparation, and data analysis.
