The following people constitute the Editorial Board of Academic Editors for PeerJ. These active academics are the Editors who seek peer reviewers, evaluate their responses, and make editorial decisions on each submission to the journal. We will continue to add to the board of Academic Editors and are seeking qualified and diverse academics who share our vision.

Professor, School of Life Sciences, Tsinghua University, Beijing. Over 23 issued patents and 30 pending patents.
Assistant Professor of Biostatistics, Mayo Clinic. Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania. My research concerns the development and application of powerful and robust statistical methods for high-dimensional "omics" data, arising from modern high-throughput technologies such as microarray and next-generation sequencing. I am particularly interested in methods for microbiome sequencing data. Much of this effort is motivated by ongoing collaborations in projects that study the role of the human microbiome in disease pathogenesis using metagenomic sequencing.
Research interests include statistical genetics, genomics and metagenomics; and high-dimensional statistics.
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Principal Investigator at The State Key Laboratory for Brain and Cognitive Sciences of the University of Hong Kong.
Vice President for Research and Collections, and Director of the Dinosaur Institute, at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. Adjunct Professor of the University of Southern California. Research Fellow of the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences. J. S. Guggenheim Fellow and recipient of the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award of the Humboldt Foundation.
Work on private and community conservation in Africa, with specialisation in governance and economics. As a scholar practitioner and Associate Professor at University of a Florida my goal is to bridge science, practice and policy, including in training. I combine teaching/research with working in field conservation with TNC and on the Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel of GEF
