Our research group is primarily interested in the field of synthetic organic methodology. The methods development work in our lab can have overlap and potential applications in a variety of fields such as total synthesis, bioorganic and medicinal chemistry, organometallic chemistry, and reactive intermediates. Currently we are working on the development of new, mild arylmethyl transfer reagents and the applications of these reagents in organic synthesis. In addition, we are developing new transition metal mediated reactions towards the facile development of flavones and related derivatives.
