Über mich

Peter R. Schreiner is professor of organic chemistry and Liebig-Chair at the Institute of Organic Chemistry at the Justus Liebig University Giessen, Germany. He studied chemistry in his native city at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, where he received his Dr. rer. nat. (1994) in Organic Chemistry. Simultaneously, he obtained a PhD (1995) in Computational Chemistry from the University of Georgia, USA. He completed his habilitation (assistant professorship) at the University of Göttingen (1999), before becoming associate professor at the University of Georgia (Athens, USA), and head of the institute in Giessen in 2002. P. R. Schreiner is an elected member of the Leopoldina – German National Academy of Sciences, the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities, and the Arts, the Academy of Science and Literature (Mainz), and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. He received the Dirac Medal (2003, WATOC), the Adolf-von-Baeyer Memorial Award of the German Chemical Society in 2017, the RSC Award in Physical Organic Chemistry of the RSC in 2019, the Academy Award of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Science in 2020, and the ACS Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award 2021. He has been a visiting professor at the CNRS in Bordeaux, the Technion in Haifa, the Australian National University in Canberra, and the University of Florida in Gainesville. His research interests include organic reaction dynamics and reactive intermediates, quantum mechanical tunneling as well as London dispersion interactions as probed in the realm of nanodiamonds and organocatalysis.

Beyond chemistry I'm still (even after 40+ years) trying to learn how to play the electric guitar and how to play tennis.
