His research interests lie in the development and application of new organic synthetic methodology. Current work is focused on the development of a new alpha adrenergic agonist and continued investigations of new methods for selectively deprotecting silyl ethers. Another area of interest is the development of new organic chemistry exercises on the microscale and using microwave technology.
