My present research interests:
Secondary metabolites from fungi and plants: extraction, purification and structure determination (HPLC-MS and NMR). Chiroptical properties: determination of absolute configurations by experimental (ECD) and theoretical (ab-initio DFT) investigations.
Total synthesis of natural products, also stereoselective.
Taxonomy and systematics of Basidiomycota.
I collaborate with several research groups, in order to achieve information on the bioactivity of the isolated metabolites (cytotoxicity, anti-bacterial, anti-insect, wound-healing).
