Research Interests 
(1) Total synthesis of natural products. (2) Carbohydrate Chemistry. (3) Chemical biology 
(4) Carbohydrate based drug design and discovery 
The research group involves the total synthesis of natural products using carbohydrates as chiral pool starting materials. Synthesis of amino-acid and carbohydrate hybrids like glyco-amino acids and carbohydrate conjugates has also been investigated in our group. In addition, our research also focused on the development of straight forward synthetic methodologies for the construction crucial subunits, such as fused bicycles and spirocycles, which are present in various highly bio-active natural products possessing anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties.
