Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Vanderbilt University

Our research focuses on developing new tools to broaden our fundamental understanding of chemistry while addressing problems significant to human health. To achieve this objective, we divide our efforts between two broadly defined areas, bio- and glycoconjugate assembly and natural product total synthesis. Since our goal is to interface our synthetic efforts with issues of therapeutic application, we value interdisciplinary collaborations with biologists who aid in evaluation of the molecules we prepare. This approach, which is fostered by the Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology, is a critical aspect of our program.
