Gary Hieftje is Distinguished Professor and Mann Chair of Chemistry at Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana. His research interests include the investigation of basic mechanisms in and the development of instrumentation and techniques for atomic, molecular, and biomolecular methods of analysis. He is interested also in use of time-resolved luminescence processes for analysis, application of information theory to analytical chemistry, analytical mass spectrometry, near-infrared reflectance analysis, metallomics, and the use of stochastic processes to extract basic andna kinetic chemical information. He has won numerous awards in analytical chemistry, chemical instrumentation, and spectroscopy, has held major offices in scientific societies, has delivered many named lectures, and has served on the editorial boards of many major journals. He has authored over 600 publications, 13 books, 20 chapters, and 22 patents. To date, 70 students have received doctorates under his direction, and scores of undergraduates and visiting scientists have performed research in his laboratories.
