Main current Research interests:

  1. Streamlined installation of functional groups onto organic frameworks by means of organocatalytic direct functionalization of aliphatic C−H bonds via single-electron transfer processes.
  2. stereoselective transition metal-catalyzed olefin difunctionalization.
  3. Synthetic organic chemistry towards natural product total synthesis and late-stage functionalization of xenobiotics.
