Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry; Göttingen University, Germany 
M.Sc. in Chemistry; Higher Chemical College of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia

My research program merges catalysis, organoboron chemistry, photochemistry, synthesis of bioactive natural products, and heterocyclic chemistry with the goal of developing new reactions, catalytic platforms, and synthetic strategies that rapidly build up structural complexity with predictable regio- and stereocontrol. My group develops synthetic methods leveraging photogenerated reactive intermediates that are not accessible in the ground state. These methods streamline access to complex synthetic targets, including natural products, biological probes, and drugs. We also develop new catalytic platforms for efficient and selective construction of synthetically challenging nitrogen heterocycles and conjugated polyunsaturated compounds that are widely represented among molecules with broad biomedical applications.
