Our Research focuses on catalysis involving transition metal complexes. The approach is multidisciplinary: synthesis, kinetics, development of novel instrumentation, sophisticated NMR spectroscopy, theory, and computations all are brought to bear on contemporary issues in homogeneous catalysis. Themes in our current research include the creation of highly selective and active catalysts for asymmetric transformations, mechanistic studies of important catalytic processes, and simple approaches to understanding electronic structure throughout the periodic table.
