Research Summary:

In our lab, we have multiple areas of focus which all entail the synthesis of interesting molecules. In the medicinal chemistry projects, we are designing and synthesizing molecules that target specific interactions in biological systems. In the synthetic methodology projects, we are designing and testing reaction conditions to enable new organic reaction transformations.
