Research

My research program will focus on the exploration of new chemical space with interests at the interface between chemistry and biology.

Through diversity-oriented synthesis, one of our goals is to engineer potential chemotherapeutics and small-molecule inhibitors, with a focus on designing compound libraries inspired by nature.
My main research interest entails the development of new synthetic methods with application to short, efficient natural and natural product-like total syntheses. Secondary metabolites, of marine origin, which possess interesting molecular architecture as well as promising biological activity will be our primary targets.WmMwebsite_image
