Research Interests

Organometallic Chemistry

Organosilane chemistry



Synthetic, structural, and reactivity studies on transition metal compounds are pursued in the search for new chemical transformations, catalysts, and advanced solid state materials


We are interested in the application of transition metals to silicon synthesis. The areas under investigation range from synthetic, structural, and reactivity studies on novel inorganic systems to the use of cobalt, tantalum, and nickel in silicon chemistry.


Crystal structure analysis is one of the most powerful techniques for elucidating molecular and solid state structures, as well as characterising materials. Molecular geometry is afforded with unprecedented accuracy and intermolecular interactions can be analysed.
