Research overview

Our group works to solve problems in catalysis by using mechanism and with a focus on application. We work across the field of homogeneous catalysis from transition metals (Pd, Cu, Ni) to organocatalysis and focus on making C–C and C–X bonds. The bonds we target are typically related to chemotypes present in bioactive molecules. We have active projects in medicinal chemistry (enzyme inhibitors), chemical biology (bioconjugation), and agrochemistry (SAR on natural product templates).
