We focus on the synthesis of novel heterocyclic derivatives through methods to form strategic bonds directly to intact ring systems. We have particular interest in the preparation of chiral 3-, 4- and 5-membered rings and the synthesis of derivatives by C–C and C–heteroatom bond formation.

Our interests encompass both novel structure and novel reactivity; the design of new structural types as fragments, reactive intermediates and carbenoid reagents, new catalytic systems, and developing mechanistic understanding of the processes we discover.
