Expertise DescriptionI have more than 25 years of experience in organic chemistry. My academic research culminated in three post-doctoral programs: bio-organic, heterocyclic and energetic, and carbohydrate chemistry. As a senior research scientist with a big pharmaceutical company, my work focused on drug discovery and medicinal chemistry. I also have expertise in synthetic chemistry, how to make advanced chemicals that are difficult to synthesize and which perhaps have not been made before.
Areas of Expertise
My consulting work is focused on the design and optimization of small molecules. Although it is centered on drug discovery and medicinal chemistry, it includes a broader set of medical applications such as developing PET/SPECT imaging precursors. I also provide consulting in other areas of organic chemistry such as the production of algae biofuels and the development of compounds for organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology. I also help clients solve problems in the synthesis of difficult compounds.
My professional experience includes 4 years as a research scientist with a large pharmaceutical company performing lead generation and lead optimization. For the following 10 years, I have run my own company that provides custom synthesis of advanced specialty organic compounds and consulting in organic chemistry.
I completed several two-year postdoctoral research programs at distinguished universities. My background at a large pharmaceutical company has provided me with valuable industrial experience being involved with the considerations surrounding patents for chemical compounds in addition to my work as a research chemist.
My core expertise is organic synthesis to support the pharmaceutical industry. I direct my chemistry team here as they purify many organic compounds and we do synthesize a variety of dyes. I completed a two year post-doctoral research program at a prestigious institution that focused on peptides, a post-doctoral research programs at another major university on heterocyclic chemistry, and a post-doctoral program at an elite university on carbohydrate/medicinal chemistry. My background at a large pharmaceutical company, gives me good industrial experience with the considerations surrounding patents for chemicals.
