SHP Speaker: Jeffrey Reimer | March 13, 2017
Professor Jeffrey Reimer was born in Van Nuys, California, and received his bachelor’s degree (with honors) from the University of California at Santa Barbara. He obtained his doctorate in Chemical Physics from the California Institute of Technology while working with physicists from Xerox PARC to examine the chemistry and the physics of solar cell materials.
Prior to his appointment at Berkeley, Professor Reimer conducted basic and applied research in semiconductor science and technology as a postdoctoral fellow at IBM Research in Yorktown Heights, New York. He earned a Presidential Young Investigator Award and the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award during his early years at Berkeley. After receiving tenure in recognition of his contributions in applying magnetic resonance spectroscopy, he was named the R.W. Vaughan Lecturer at the Rocky Mountain Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy.
Professor Reimer was named a Mercator Professor of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) at RWTH Aachen University while on leave from Berkeley in 2006. His work on applying spectroscopy to problems in materials chemistry and physics led to his election as a Fellow to both the American Association for the Advancement of Science and to the American Physical Society. In 2012 he received the Eastern Analytical Society award for outstanding contributions to magnetic resonance.
