Research in our group spans from pure chemistry (synthesis & mechanism) to applied chemistry (in biology & medicine) and generally, but not always, focuses on the reactions of radicals. We design new reactions, synthesize new molecules and use them to explore the role of radicals - and develop strategies to control them - in contexts ranging from hydrocarbon oxidation to cell death.
