Research Description

I am an inorganic chemist interested in organometallic and main group chemistry. Over the years I have worked with the lightest elements such as boron and the heaviest such as uranium. In our current research we are exploring the chemistry of hemilabile ligands, studying metal alkoxides that thermally decompose into ceramics, and evaluating metal complexes that form supramolecular hydrogen bond networks.
