Current Research Interests

I am a synthetic organic chemist and my research group is involved in the total synthesis of natural products. We follow biomimetic strategies in our attempts to synthesise these highly complex and useful molecules. Through this endeavour we learn how to better harness innate reactivity and develop the use of powerful domino reaction sequences.
