Research Interests

I am interested in the use of synthetic organic chemistry as applied to the solution of biological problems and vice versa.  The understanding of how Nature’s macromolecules such as proteins and DNA work and interact with one another can often be probed by use of small organic molecules.  Such molecules are often not available from the natural pool and so the synthetic chemist is central to solving such problems.  Similarly, synthetic chemistry although well capable of preparing the most complex and intricate of molecules can often only do so at great expense of time and resources. Natural systems, if harnessed correctly offer the opportunity to construct molecules of such complexity much more quickly and efficiently.
