We are a team of passionate and dedicated molecule builders and chemical structure editors. Our goal is to innovate in both the strategy and methodology of organic synthesis and use these innovations to solve problems of biological and medical importance and ultimately impact human health. Our research program centers on organic synthesis (natural product total synthesis, synthetic methodology and catalysis) and expands into drug discovery and chemical biology.

We spent ten wonderful years (2012-2022) at Purdue University and moved to Emory University in Fall 2022. Our lab is located in the gorgeous Atwood Chemistry Building on the beautiful Emory campus in Atlanta (City in a forest). We are always looking for outstanding and fearless Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students, and Postdoctoral Fellows to join our adventure.
