  • Expertise

    Organic Chemistry-Synthetic Method Development, Natural Product Total Synthesis, Organocatalysis, Reaction Mechanisms
  • Research Interests

    Synthetic Methods, Natural Product Synthesis, Reaction Mechanisms, Computational Chemistry; Dr. Lambert's research interests are in the development of novel synthetic methods and the total synthesis of biologically relevant natural products. Our interest lies in the development of robust methodologies, particularly those involving transition metal and nitroxide catalysts, to access the complex architectures found within natural products, as well as, core structural motifs that are of interest to both medicinal and synthetic chemists. We have an additional interest in gaining a fundamental understanding of the mechanistic underpinnings of our developed chemistry, and often employ both experimental and computational methods to do so.
