Backed by more than five decades of professional experience, J. Daniel Kimel, Ph.D., is considered one of the greatest scientific minds in the country. He launched his robust career in field of physics in 1965 as a research associate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The following year, he joined the faculty at Florida State University in a similar capacity, and ever since, he has excelled at preparing FSU students for successful careers in the discipline of physics. After serving as a professor from 1967 to 2003, Dr. Kimel was bestowed with the title of professor emeritus. Additionally, between 1989 and 1991, Dr. Kimel served as the director of graduate affairs for the university’s Department of Physics.
Though retired, Dr. Kimel is still an active contributor in the science community. He has shared his insight through the publication of articles to professional journals, as well as through his work as the co author of “Superconductivity Revisited.” Amongst Dr. Kimel’s greatest achievements is his research on double-scattering models and chew low extrapolations, the uniqueness of the interaction involving spin particles, parton transverse momentum effects, and higher-order quantum chromodynamics calculations.
Since entering academia and the field of physics, Dr. Kimel has been consistently recognized for his achievements. In 1959, Dr. Kimel was inducted into the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. From 1960 to 1963, he was an elected fellow of the National Science Foundation. In addition, he was chosen as a high-energy physics research grantee by the United States Department of Energy for a remarkable period of time — from 1966 to 1990. Moreover, he was honored with the Albert Nelson Marquis Who’s Who Lifetime Achievement Award.
