Hegg’s research team focuses on the variety of ways that nature uses metals to activate and/or produce small molecules such as O2, H2, NO, and H2O2.  In pursuit of this goal, his lab utilizes a combination of mechanistic enzymology, molecular biology, spectroscopy, and isotope analysis to study processes that include oxidative delignification of biomass, microbial H2 and N2O production, and cytochrome c oxidase assembly.
