    Research Expertise:
    Drug Discovery | Reaction Invention | Organic Synthesis

    My background is in synthetic organic chemistry with an emphasis in methods development and library synthesis. My research group is focused on developing novel reactions for the synthesis of biologically relevant molecular scaffolds. Our central hypothesis is to invent organic reactions to access biologically relevant molecular targets. Thus, I have a number of projects dedicated to the synthesis of small molecule libraries with a diverse array of biological properties and to the discovery of novel reaction pathways for the synthesis of complex molecular scaffolds.

    Novel Methods for the Synthesis of Small Heterocycles, Synthesis of Pharmacologically Relevant Molecular Scaffolds, Photoredox Catalysis for New Reaction Discovery, Isolation and Characterization of Natural Products from Peruvian Medicinal Plants, Development of Novel Drugs for the Treatment of Diabetes and Cardiovascular Diseases, Novel Alkaloid-like Scaffolds as Highly Potent Analgesics Without side Effects.
