Research in the group focuses on the development of broadly applicable catalytic reactions that will find widespread applications across the field of organic chemistry. In light of the ongoing drive towards the design and implementation of sustainable chemical processes, we are particularly interested in the development of reactions that enable the rapid build-up of molecular complexity from simple and readily accessible starting materials. Current projects involve the development of carbon-carbon bond forming reactions enabled through the catalytic activation of alcohols, and the development of novel routes to heterocyclic scaffolds through ring-expansion processes.
