Welcome to our group page!

In our research laboratory we focus on learning chemistry techniques in Organic and Bio-Organic Chemistry.

There are two main sub-groups in the lab:

  • Prebiotic polypeptide chemistry, a collaboration with  NSF-NASA Center for Chemical Evolution

  • Development of antibiotic-absorbent nanomaterials to fight the prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
