Our research interests are in the development of novel synthetic methods, computational investigations of chemical reactivity, and the total synthesis of biologically relevant natural products. By developing robust and more environmentally sustainable methodologies, particularly those involving catalysis, we seek to streamline access to the complex architectures found within natural products, as well as, core structural motifs that are of interest to both medicinal and synthetic chemists.
Join us in celebrating Jennifer in her selection as the first ODU student to be chosen for a Goldwater Scholar award! Funded by the Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation and Department of Defense, Jennifer was selected as one of 413 students out of over 5000 applications. She’s even celebrated on our school’s website!
We are so excited to welcome our very first post doctoral fellow, Jean Bray! Jean joins us from University of Connecticut where she recently graduated. Thank you Jean for moving here and becoming the newest member of our research group.
Stephonda will be joining Northwestern’s chemistry department this summer for organic chemistry research. We’re sure she will learn a lot and hopefully have some fun in Chicago while she is there!
Join us in celebrating Robert graduating and heading to Northwestern University to pursue graduate studies! As a graduating senior, Robert was honored as the top physical chemistry student for 2021 – 2022 academic school year. Were all very proud of you Robert!
