Our group will focus on the development of new strategies to address current limitations and explore new areas in catalysis and synthetic organic chemistry. Our research program will involve aspects of supramolecular chemistry, organometallic chemistry and reaction mechanism elucidation. Specific projects will include, for example, the use of scaffolding strategies and molecular self-assembly to control catalyst configurations in solution and/or reaction product outcomes. We will also develop transition metal catalysts for the nucleophilic functionalization of C-O and C-N bonds. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in joining our group or would like additional information about our research projects.
