Research Interests
My current research programs are focused on the discovery and mechanistic characterization of bioactive natural products. My major research effort is to discover the bioactive natural products by LC-MS and NMR techniques. Moreover, the research of the action mechanisms of the active ingredients was also an important part of the program.
Current Projects
1.         Michael addition acceptors with natural origin and their bioactivities.
2.          Novel active ingredients from marine microbes
3.          Novel targets of the active chemical constituents.
