Albert Cotton Award in Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry (2013), and the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Faculty Achievement Award (2014). Robinson’s research, involving the synthesis, structure, and reactivity of unusual main group molecules, has been described as provocatively innovative. He serves on the board of the UGA Research Foundation.
