Professor Clemmer received a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Utah and did postdoctoral work at the Himeji Institute of Technology (Japan) and Northwestern University before coming to IU in 1995. His research involves the development of methods for studying the structures of complex low-symmetry systems in the gas phase. These methods are being applied to several types of problems including elucidation of fundamental issues associated with how a protein folds, as well as studies of complex mixtures of proteins - the emerging field of proteomics.

Professor Clemmer has published more than 250 papers and his work has been recognized with several awards.These awards include the Fresenius Chemistry Award as well as the 2018 John B. Fenn Distinguishing Contribution Award, which he shared with Martin F. Jarrold and Gert von Helden.
