I am a highly motivated natural products chemist with an interest in the isolation, purification and structural characterization of bioactive secondary metabolites from plants and microbials. With a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences and postdoctoral work experience in Natural Products Chemistry, I have sound skills in isolation of natural products using a variety of techniques, specifically significant preparative HPLC experience, and elucidation of their structures via a combination of techniques, including NMR and mass spectrometry. In addition, I gained solid understanding of secondary metabolite biosynthesis and experience using analytical techniques to identify potential targets. Within the multidisciplinary Goss group, my current research focuses on fermenting the heterologous BGC expression strains and identifying isolation targets with rigorous analytical chemistry (HPLC, LC/MS) from them.
