Research Focus

The projects in my Lab are multidisciplinary in nature encompassing the areas of organic chemistry,  bioorganic chemistry, and application of computational chemistry tools. We are interested in novel approaches to drug design and neutralization of nerve agents using computationally aided design and synthesis of biologically relevant modulators (inhibitors, antagonists, activators and agonists) and catalysts. We are also involved in the chemical development of and metal complexes of a family of fluorophores bearing the fluorescent bimane core.
