My scientific interests include functionalization of C-H bound, domino reactions, drug discovery, application of fluorine and phosphorus chemistry in molecular and drug design, combinatorial chemistry, chemistry of heterocyclic compounds (in particular purine isosters), element organic chemistry and green chemistry. He is also interested in design of fine-tunable phosphine ligands for homogenous and organo-catalysis. My expertise also covers molecular design, drug design, medicine chemistry, fluorine-containing bioactive molecules. I am co-author of about 100 papers and 40 conference contributions.
