Personal profile

Research interests

Currently, my research focuses on the development of bile acid analogues inhibitory to Clostridium difficile spore germination. I am also interested in developing new reaction strategies for novel heterocycles of potential therapeutic properties. Most of my research efforts have been focused on developing modulators for Sirtuin enzyme for the post-translational modification studies.
