synthesis of stereochemically complex molecules
"Scott Miller"

Professor Miller received his B.A.(1989), M.A.(1989) and Ph.D.(1994) from Harvard University, and worked under Professor David Evans as a National Science Foundation Predoctoral Fellow. He later joined the California Institute of Technology as a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow under Professor Robert Grubbs. From 1996 to 2006, he served as a Professor of Chemistry at Boston College before joining the Chemistry Department at Yale University as a Professor of Organic Chemistry. Prof. Miller's research program focuses on problems in asymmetric catalysis and synthesis. His efforts employ strategies that include catalyst design, the development of combinatorial techniques for catalyst screening, and the application of these approaches to complex molecule synthesis. Specific areas of interest include enantioselective acyl transfers, conjugate additions, phosphorylations, sulfations and carbon-carbon bond forming reactions.
