(1) Total synthesis of heterocyclic natural products with medicinal and or structural importance, (2) Development of new synthetic organic reactions. Currently, my group has been involved in the discovery of new ligand for Ullman type aryl-aryl couplings. (3) Development of new experiments for undergraduate organic laboratory curriculum using microwave-assisted reactions. (4) Comparison of online vs. face-to-face course medium for a general chemistry course.
