I am interested in using fundamental mechanistic concepts to design new organometallic complexes for catalysis.

Access to catalysts that can have the capability to facilitate challenging organic transformations, such as being able to take simple and readily available substrates, and turn them into useful precursors for material- or drug synthesis is highly desirable. My focus is dedicated on rationally designing transition metal complexes that can act as such catalysts.
