About Professor Reingold

Dr Reingold earned his BA at Dartmouth
College in 1971 and a PhD in 1976 from the University of Oregon. After a postdoc at the University of Alberta, he began a 34-year career teaching undergraduates at Haverford, Middlebury, Lewis & Clark, and Juniata College. He served as one of the first elected councilors of the Council on Undergraduate Research, was chair of the Chemistry Division in 1998-2000 and chair of the Finance committee from 1998-2001. He helped run the early versions of the CUR Proposal Writing Institute and has evaluated eight different chemistry departments for CUR, ACS, and as an independent contractor.

Dr Reingold received over $1.3 million in funding for his research on theoretically interesting molecules, especially strained semibullvalenes, and invented the TIM consortium, an REU site that is focused on an idea rather than a location and is still running after 16 years. Professor Reingold is Portland State University’s resident glassblower. He chaird the Portland Section of the American Chemistry Society in 2015.
