Research Summary

We are interested in developing new chemical reactions for use in synthetic organic chemistry and applying them to the synthesis of useful molecular targets.Our research is focused on the development of new methods for organic synthesis. In all cases, the research projects seek to provide novel solutions to challenging chemical problems, which will facilitate the synthesis of small, highly functionalised organic molecules with potential applications in drug discovery or chemical biology.
