MILWAUKEE — Dr. Scott Reid, professor of chemistry, recently received the Lawrence G. Haggerty Faculty Award for Research Excellence.

Reid is an internationally recognized scholar and well-established leader in the field of spectroscopy and dynamics of reactive chemical intermediates — key players in the mechanisms of many real-world chemical processes, the atmosphere and beyond.

Through Reid’s elegant approach, these reactive intermediates have been thoroughly investigated by a variety of sophisticated laser spectroscopic techniques, including photodissociation methods, coherent laser spectroscopy, photoionization mass spectrometry, and the development and application of spectroscopic instrumentation and methods.

Reid has developed a world-class research program with 124 publications in refereed journals, effectively training more than 30 undergraduate co-workers, three master’s students, eight doctoral students and seven postdoctoral associates. ln addition, his research program has generated more than $3 million in external support.

“One thing I really appreciate about Marquette is the teacher-scholar model,” says Reid. “Your research informs your teaching, and you strive for excellence in both. Our research with undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students is critical as we seek to encourage, motivate and equip the next generation of scientists.”

His impressive ability to communicate scientific information has already been recognized by the university with the Robert and Mary Gettel Faculty Award for Teaching Excellence in 2007. He is also the recipient of the 2010–11 Way Klingler Sabbatical Award and the 2015–18 Way Klingler Science Fellowship Award.

The Lawrence G. Haggerty Faculty Award recognizes a faculty member who has demonstrated scholarly distinction and an all-encompassing belief in excellence.
