Jeffrey A. Reimer is the C. Judson King Endowed Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of California at Berkeley, and a faculty scientist at the E.O. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He is presently the Warren and Katharine Schlinger Distinguished Professor and Chair of this department. From 2000 to 2005 he was Associate Dean of the UC Berkeley Graduate Division where his responsibilities included the assessment of doctoral programs. In 1998 he won he Donald Sterling Noyce Prize for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching in the Physical Sciences and was given the AIChE Northern California Section Award for Chemical Engineering Excellence in Academic Teaching. Professor Reimer was awarded the UC Berkeley Distinguished Teaching Award in 2003, the highest award bestowed on faculty for their teaching.

Professor Reimer received his bachelor’s degree (with honors) from the University of California at Santa Barbara, and obtained his doctorate from the California Institute of Technology. Prior to his appointment at Berkeley, he was a postdoctoral fellow at IBM Research in Yorktown Heights, New York. At Berkeley received the Presidential Young Investigator Award and was named a Camille and Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar. Professor Reimer was named a Mercator Professor of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) at RWTH Aachen University for the Spring of 2006. He was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science for “contributions to understanding materials chemistry though the application of sophisticated spectroscopic and physical measurements,” and a Fellow of the American Physical Society in the Division of Materials Physics, “for the design and analysis of in situ spectroscopic studies of materials and electrochemical processes.” Professor Reimer was awarded the Eastern Analytical Symposium Award for outstanding contributions to magnetic resonance. In addition to his ~160 research publications, Professor Reimer is co-author (with T.M. Duncan) of the introductory text Chemical Engineering Design and Analysis (Cambridge University Press, 1998), and the text Carbon Capture and Sequestration (with Berend Smit, Curt Oldenburg, Ian Bourg, World Scientific Press, 2013).

The goal of Professor Reimer's research is the exploration and application of spectroscopic methods that inform society about materials chemistry and analyses. At the present time his group is focusing on the sequestration of carbon dioxide, nuclear thermodynamics and nuclear spintronics, and alternatives to the internal combustion engine.

This publications database is an ongoing project, and not all Division publications are represented here yet.
