Shukree is currently working on methodology for the Lewis Acid-Initiated Alkynyl Halo-Prins reaction and its applications to natural product synthesis. Additionally, Shukree is also investigating Lewis Acid-mediated cationic cyclizations as well as developing methodology for asymmetric Bronsted acid-catalyzed cationic cascades via tethered alcohol alkyne-carbonyl metathesis.
