CIFAR Senior Fellow and Professor of Chemistry

Gregory Scholes is the William S. Tod Professor of Chemistry at Princeton University. Originally from Melbourne, Australia, he later undertook postdoctoral training at Imperial College London and University of California Berkeley. He started his independent career at the University of Toronto (2000-2014) where he was the D.J. LeRoy Distinguished Professor. Dr. Scholes is the Deputy Editor for the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, a Senior Fellow in the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research program Biology, Energy, Technology, and a Professorial Fellow at the University of Melbourne.
