Current research interests are in the area of synthetic organic chemistry, particularly the preparation, characterization, and reactions of novel heterocyclic compounds. Areas of interest include: A. Studies in the preparation and reactions of novel N-oxygenated pyrazoles of types 1-3 shown below, and of compounds of related structures. B. Investigation of new 4-oximino-4,5-dihydroisoxazole derivatives of type 4 and related compounds.
