My research interests are in the broad field of organic synthesis and projects in my group range from developing new asymmetric reactions and synthetic methods to the total synthesis of natural products possessing interesting structural features and biological properties. Our work requires detailed analysis of spectra to characterize synthetic intermediates and we frequently use molecular modeling to develop synthetic strategies.
