Areas of Research/Expertise

 My research interest is at the interface of synthetic, supramolecular and materials science. We perform the synthesis of fluorinated heterocycles and other biologically relevant molecules. We study the formation of multiresponsive polymers, some of these macromolecules are prepared in a controlled fashion. Finally, we investigate the use of halogen bonding and their application varied fields of research.
