Research Interests

Synthetic organic chemistry, total synthesis of natural products, asymmetric synthesis, biomimetic chemistry

Research Overview

We are a synthetic organic chemistry research group focused on developing and improving the science of synthesis. Our research effort is primarily focused on the total synthesis of natural products, exploring new strategies and concepts in asymmetric synthesis, and developing new synthetic methodology. We often take our strategic inspiration from the chemistry of biosynthetic pathways and are fascinated by the origin, structure and function of biological molecules.
