My research is focused on the description of reaction mechanisms by the use of computational and theoretical tools. My interests are the use of carbenoids and carbenes on the insertion of organic radicals in order to build complex systems with a wide range of applications and the use of copper catalysts to lower the energetic cost of any given reaction. Among my interests are the detailed study of reaction mechanisms and materials science, specifically catalytic reactions, organic synthesis and some reactions based on biological phenomena.
