Peter L. Rinaldi obtained his B.S. degree in chemistry from Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn in 1974, and his Ph.D. degree in organic chemistry in 1978 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After an NIH postdoctoral fellowship spent studying with G. C. Levy at Florida State University, Fla, USA, and with P. Laszlo at the Universite de Liege, Liege, Belgium (1978–80), he joined the faculty at Case Western Reserve University as an Assistant Professor. He worked for Varian Instruments as an NMR Applications Chemist, and later as Manager of NMR Field Applications Laboratories (1983–87). In 1987, he joined the faculty at The University of Akron in 1987, where he is now a Professor of chemistry (Department of Chemistry), Director of the Molecular Spectroscopy Laboratory, and Fellow of the Institute of Polymer Science. His current areas of research interests include development and application of new NMR methods for studying synthetic macromolecular, organometallic, inorganic, and biological systems. He is an author of over 150 publications, and has taught numerous short courses on basic and advanced NMR methods at national and international meetings.
