Reinhard (Reini) Boehler works on a broad range of problems in high pressure science and technology, particularly those related to major energy challenges. His research interests include the thermal properties of metals at very high pressure, the adiabatic gradient, thermal expansivity of simple metals, as well as Earth mantle and core materials. He obtained a Ph.D. and M.S. in mineralogy, and a B.S. in chemistry and physics from Universität Tübingen, Germany in 1974, 1970 and 1968.
