Professor Collins was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand, and is a citizen of both New Zealand and the United States. He holds numerous academic and public awards, has published more then 200 articles, has delivered more than 600 public lectures, and is the lead inventor of TAML and NewTAML activators, small-molecule, functional replicas of the peroxidase enzymes that outperform while mimicking the high efficiency of the enzymes to provide new approaches to water purification and other applications. He taught the first course in Green Chemistry now called, Chemistry and Sustainability, and has been developing it iteratively since 1992.
