Our research group is involved with a wide range of fundamental and applied chemistry that extends from the development of new synthetic transformations to the creation of a novel class of organic photochromic material. The overarching goal of our research is to develop robust and efficient synthetic approaches to chemical reactions for applications in material science, as well as synthesis. Our highly interdisciplinary work can be broken down into three key research areas: (1) design and development of light-responsive materials (2) synthesis of well-defined and functionalized polymers and biomaterials and (3) studying new transformations promoted by earth abundant copper salts.
