Kevin D. Belfield University of Central Florida Department of Chemistry P.O. Box 162366, Orlando, FL 32816-2366 phone: (407) 823-1028 e-mail: belfield@mail.ucf.edu http://chemistry.cos.ucf.edu/faculty_belfield.php http://belfield.cos.ucf.edu/ Kevin D. Belfield received the B.S. in Chemistry in 1982 from Rochester Institute of Technology and the Ph.D. in Chemistry from Syracuse University in 1988, where he studied the kinetics and mechanism of thermal rearrangements of organic molecules. After conducting research in polymer stabilization and degradation at Ciba-Geigy, he worked in the area of synthesis and characterization of functionalized polymers at State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. He then pursued postdoctoral research in mechanistic organic chemistry at Harvard University, utilizing photochemical reactions and determining radical stabilization energies of polyenyl radicals through spectroscopically aided kinetic studies. He joined the faculty of the Chemistry Department at the University of Detroit Mercy in 1992, where he received funding from Ford Motor Co. for new materials for stereolithography and from NSF. He moved to the University of Central Florida’s Department of Chemistry in 1998 to establish a program in functional polymer chemistry and organic photonic materials. He was appointed Chair of the Chemistry Department in November 2004, and holds joint appointments in the College of Optics and Photonics, the Biomolecular Science Center, and the Department of Mechanical, Materials, and Aerospace Engineering. His research interests are in the area of multiphoton absorbing materials, two-photon photochemistry, magnetic polymeric and sol-gel nanocomposites, site-specific fluorophore labeling, fluorescent- based sensors and bioimaging probes, photodynamic therapy agents, nanostructured functional organic and polymeric materials, and two-photon based 3D microfabrication and high density optical data storage.
