David Lee Phillips

  • Senior Research Fellowship in 2006 at The University of Hong Kong
Professor David Lee Phillips is an internationally recognised chemist who uses time-resolved spectroscopy experiments and quantum mechanical calculations to study short-lived intermediates in chemical reactions of interest in chemistry, biology and the environment. He has published more than 280 internationally refereed scientific journal articles listed in Science Citation Index. He serves on the Editorial Advisory Board of the Journal of Physical Chemistry and also on the Advisory Board of the Journal of Physical Organic Chemistry. Professor Lee graduated with a PhD from the University of California, Irvine.


Professor Philips is current working on time-resolved spectroscopy, reactive intermediates, reaction mechanisms and the vibrational characterisation of molecular excited states and chemical reactions.
