R. Daniel Little was born and raised in Superior, Wisconsin. He attended Wisconsin State University – Superior, now a branch of the University of Wisconsin, where he majored in mathematics and chemistry. After spending two summers performing undergraduate research at the University of South Dakota and one semester studying at Argonne National Laboratory, Dan entered graduate school at the University of Wisconsin. There he studied with Howard Zimmerman. Following graduation, he moved to Yale to begin postdoctoral studies with Jerome Berson. Those studies completed, he took a job as an assistant professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), rose through the ranks and became a full professor in 1986. He has served as Department Vice-Chair and Chair and has been a visiting scientist at the University of British Columbia. Current research interests focus upon green and sustainable chemistry.

Research Interest

His major research interest is on mediated, electrocatalytic, electron transfer processes, and upon obtaining an understanding of the fundamental nature of the reactive intermediates produced in this manner, as well as their chemical transformations, Green Chemistry, Redox Chemistry of Fulvenes, Pseudopterosin Class of Marine Natural Products.
