Research Interests

Current Areas of Study

We aim to solve long-standing challenges in organic synthesis and catalysis. Our research interests focus on selective, catalytic transformations and the synthesis of molecules of interest.


Transition-Metal and Enantioselective Catalysis

Transition metals provide a powerful platform for reaction discovery.

We are interested in developing base-metal catalysis. Specifically, we are interested in discovering new reactivity, enantioselective reactions, and reactions that can be applied to synthesize molecules of interest with iron catalysts. 


Challenges in target-oriented synthesis point out gaps in our current methodologies and, as a result, provide a strong foundation for chemical creativity. Molecules of interest include: materials, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and natural products. Of particular interest are photoswitchable molecules and applications therein.
