Jeff Reimers Profile
Born and educated in Australia, Jeffrey R. Reimers was awarded a BSc with honours from ANU in 1978, studying chemical spectroscopy with Prof. Ian Ross and Prof. Gad Fischer, and then his PhD from ANU in 1983, studying the structure and spectra of liquid water with Prof. Robert Watts. His Post-doctoral Fellowship was with Prof. Kent Wilson at the University of California, San Diego, co-supervised by Prof. Eric Heller from Los Alamos National laboratories and thence The University of Washington, studying semi-classical methods in spectroscopy. In 1986 Jeff returned to Australia with a QEII Fellowship at the University of Sydney. Since then Jeff has remained at this university, continually being awarded ARC Research Fellowships, and most recently in 2005 being awarded an ARC Professorial Fellowship. Jeff was promoted to Professor by The University of Sydney in January 2007.
Jeff is a Fellow of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI), and an active committee member of the national Physical Chemistry Division within the RACI. On RACI and other committees Jeff has been involved in the organising of many conferences over the years, including the 2005 RACI National Convention and US Engineering foundation conferences on Molecular Electronics. He has edited several books on Molecular Electronics and has delivered invited and contributed lectures at various conferences and symposia both in Australia and overseas on topics including molecular electronics, photosynthesis, spectroscopy, and electronic-structure computational methodology.
As a theoretical chemist, Jeff’s main research interests include electronic devices, photosynthesis, photovoltaics, molecular electronics, chemical spectroscopy, solvation, and electronic-structure computation methods. Continuous research funding from the Australian Research Council since 1985 is in excess of A$5 million. In this time Jeff has published over 130 peer-reviewed articles in journals of international repute.
The Reimers Research Group currently has around 10 members at The University of Sydney, with collaborative research occurring with both local and overseas universities.
