"T. Don Tilley"

T. Don Tilley received his B.S. degree from the University of Texas, Austin, in 1977. In 1982, he earned his Ph.D. degree at the University of California, Berkeley, with R. A. Andersen, studying organometallic lanthanide chemistry. In 1982-1983, he participated in a NSF-sponsored postdoctoral exchange program, working with Professors Robert Grubbs and John Bercaw at Caltech and with Professors Luigi Venanzi and Piero Pino at the ETH in Zürich, Switzerland. He started his independent career at the University of California, San Diego, in 1983 and rose to the rank of Professor of Chemistry before moving to his current positions as Professor of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley, and Senior Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (1994). His research interests include synthetic, structural, catalytic, and mechanistic investigations in inorganic and organometallic chemistry.
