More about research interests.
My research interests are in the broad field of synthetic chemistry. Projects in my group range from the total synthesis of natural products possessing unusual structural features and biological properties to developing new synthetic methods. Ring formation by intramolecular epoxide opening has been a theme in our work for many years. Our work often requires detailed analysis of NMR spectra to characterize new compounds and assign relative stereochemistry.
