Author: Rebecca Hicks


We are delighted to welcome Dr. Evgenii Kovrigin as the new Director of the Magnetic Resonance Research Center at Notre Dame and as an Associate Research Professor. Dr. Kovrigin joins us from Marquette University, bringing his over seventeen years of NMR experience.

Dr. Kovrigin’s expertise centers on NMR theory and data analysis, particularly for small molecules and proteins. He has also developed new research software packages for the analysis of NMR line shapes, specifically including LineShapeKin, LineShapeKin Simulation, and Integrative Data Analysis Platform (IDAP). He holds a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology (Moscow, Russia) and completed postdoctoral training at the Institute of Protein Research (Russia), UT Southwest Medical Center, and Yale University.

The Magnetic Resonance Research Center is a state-of-the-art NMR facility serving inorganic, organic, and biological chemists, biophysicists, and materials scientists at the University of Notre Dame and beyond. Nine NMR instruments ranging from 300 to 800 MHz are used by students, postdocs, staff, and faculty for solution and solid-state NMR experiments. The Center provides individualized user training and supports continuous development of advanced NMR pulse programs and software for NMR data analysis to facilitate competitive cutting-edge research.
