Professor Gillian Reid
BSc PhD MRSC
Gill Reid received a BSc (Hons) from the University of Edinburgh in 1986, and remained there to study for a Ph.D. investigating the synthesis, structures and redox properties of transition metal complexes of aza and thioether macrocyclic complexes. In 1991, following a two year post-doctoral position, Gill was appointed to a lectureship in Inorganic Chemistry at Southampton. She was appointed as Professor in 2006.
As well as serving as a member of the EPSRC College, Gill has served on the RSC's Dalton Council (1999-2002), Committee for Professional and Continuous Development (2007-2010) and on the RSC UK Macrocycles and Supramolecular Group Committee (1992-2003). She is currently Chair of the RSC Mid-Southern Counties Local Section.
In addition to her strong research interests in inorganic chemistry, including macrocyclic chemistry, transition metal and main group coordination chemistry and organometallic chemistry, which have led to over 230 publications, Gill is currently head of the Molecular Assembly, Function and Structure research section in Southampton. She also has strong interests in chemistry education, outreach and public engagement in science.
She received the Vice Chancellor's Award for Teaching in Chemistry in 2006 and an RSC Award for Achievement in the Promotion of Chemistry in 2007.
