We develop new reactions to solve problems in organic synthesis and energy conversion.

Research Focus

The Diao group focuses on solving long-standing problems in organic synthesis and sustainable energy research through transition metal catalysis. Currently we are working on Nickel-catalyzed transformations and fundamental mechanistic studies.
