Research in our lab focuses on applying computational quantum chemistry to understand structure-property relationships that underlie hydrogen (H-) bond mediated catalyses, self-assembly, and molecular recognition processes. Emphasis is on the development of innovative molecular design principles. Our mission is to provide chemical insights that will help bridge fundamental physical organic concepts to applications in supramolecular material and organocatalysis design.
