I have a long-standing interest in natural products and my current research topics are connected to fundamental scientific questions related to them.

  1. What kind of compounds are present in living organisms and how can such a huge number of metabolites be identified?
  2. Why do organisms produce these diverse metabolites?
  3. Which are the roles of these natural compounds in organisms
  4. How can we take advantage of all this wealth of resources provided by Nature to solve life science problems and develop useful products?
