Exploration of Metal-Metal Bonds for Reactivity With Small Molecules

This researcher explores uncommon transformations mediated by transition metal centers. Of specific interest is the design and development of metal-ligand systems to study fundamental aspects of CO2 conversion and C-C bond cleavage. Another area of interest is the synthesis of new families of bimetallic complexes to better understand metal-metal bonding and their use in multi-electron transfer reactions.
