His current scientific interests lie on the discovery and mechanistic elucidation of new asymmetric organocatalytic and photochemical processes for the preparation of chiral molecules. The final aim is to develop sustainable catalytic methods that will find widespread use in organic synthesis.

The way our methods will contribute to the transition toward a more sustainable chemistry is twofold: by using visible light (the quintessential renewable and inexhaustible form of energy) to drive chemical processes that would be otherwise inaccessible or energetically costly; and by applying catalytic technologies to minimise waste production while converting readily available materials and natural compounds into novel organic molecules
