Broad interests in synthetic organic and organometallic methodology including:

  • Group 11 metal chemistry
  • Application of organometallic chemistry to organic synthesis and polymer chemistry
  • Development of new enantio- and diastereoselective transformations

Students and postdocs in our group will be exposed to research at the convergence of organic, organometallic and polymer chemistry, often having direct technological applications. The training will provide these individuals with the capacity to make contributions in both science and technology.
