About Me

We work in the field of synthetic organic chemisty with emphasis on assymetric catalysis, C-H bond activation and total synthesis. Our reserach efforts are directed towards developing newer synthetic methodologies and utilizing the same for developing cost effective and efficient total sytnthetic routes to biologically relevant small molecules.
