Garry Rumbles, Ph.D., is a research fellow at NREL and an adjoint professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at CU-Boulder. Rumbles joined NREL in 2000 and is widely recognized for his research in photochemistry and photophysics of conjugated molecular systems, energy conversion in organic light emitting diodes and organic photovoltaic devices, and nanoscale morphology. In 2004, he was made a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. Rumbles has published more than 130 journal articles and more than 10 book sections. Rumbles' current research interests are in solar energy with a focus on the basic science of solar photoconversion processes and photoinduced electron transfer processes in polymer-based nanostructured interfaces. His primary research expertise lies in photochemistry and photophysics, with a specialty in kinetics.
Garry was an Associate Director for RASEI, stepping down in 2023.
