We are currently developing methods involving a variety of transition metals to serve our strategies for the synthesis of complex natural products with interesting biological properties. Our energy is focussed on extending the efficiency and reliability of our synthetic procedures. By furthering the understanding and predictability of chemical processes, we wish to elegantly elaborate new routes to building organic molecules.

Targets of interests include polyoxygenated antibiotics, terpenes, alkaloids, metal complexes, etc. that exhibit anti-cancer and antibiotic properties.
