Research Interests

My main research interest lies in the synthesis of pharmaceutically active natural products. Students involved in this work will run reactions and purify and characterize products. Our current target is an anti-cancer drug isolated from the fruits and bark of tree. I am also interested in the development of molecularly imprinted polymers for use in chemical sensors. Students involved in this project will use combinatorial chemistry to optimize reaction conditions. Our current targets are flavonoids because of the health benefits they provide against cancer and heart disease.
