Research Interests

Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Materials Chemistry

Our group is interested in ways to develop greener and more sustainable chemistry. Two approaches we will be undertaking is in the development of new strategies to address current limitations in main-group catalysis, developing novel small molecules and materials to address these drawbacks. Furthermore, we are also interested in the development of dyes and materials from renewable sources. Our research program is very broad, involving aspects of inorganic, organic, supramolecular and materials chemistry.
