Current Projects

Our research interests are in the development of novel synthetic methods, leveraging computational and experimental results to better understand chemical reactivity, and the total synthesis of biologically relevant natural products. By developing robust 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. Students will learn modern and environmentally sustainable techniques in synthetic organic chemistry, learn to survey the current literature, and develop strong laboratory and communication skills necessary to develop into an independent synthetic chemist!
