Organic chemistry, electrocatalysis, asymmetric catalysis, organic materials



  • Chemistry and Chemical Biology

Graduate Fields

  • Chemistry and Chemical Biology


We will use our expertise in organic chemistry and electrochemistry to develop new catalytic methods to address unsolved problems in organic and materials synthesis. Particular emphases will be placed on the rational design of catalysts and the creative use of electrochemistry that will allow for the facile and selective conversion of readily available starting materials, such as sugars, CO2 and abundant natural products, into highly functionalized and value-added products, such as pharmaceuticals and polymers.
