Who is Robert J. LeRoy?

Dr. Robert J. LeRoy is one of Canada’s leading chemists and is currently a University Professor at the University of Waterloo.

LeRoy received the BSc and MSc degrees from University of Toronto in 1965 and 1967, respectively, and a PhD degree from University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1971.

LeRoy is renowned for two major achievements in the field of chemistry: the development of the near-dissociation theory, alongside R. B. Bernstein, and the derivation of the LeRoy Radius. LeRoy is also the author of many computer programs that aid in collecting information from experiments. Many of his works are used by schools and labs throughout the world and have contributed to the progress of science.

He is a graduate from the University of Toronto. During his stay there, he began working with theoretical and computational chemical physics, which is what he would deal with for the rest of his career.

In his research, Dr LeRoy involves using quantum mechanical theory to understand and explain how properties of molecular systems are the results of forces of interaction by quantitatively determining those forces from measurements of various properties.
