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. Learn more about becoming an Editor.
Degree in Biology, University of Porto, in 1974; PhD in 1983. Full Professor since 1993.
CURRENT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES: Formal and population genetics. Pure and applied genetics, forensics (human and non-human paternity and kinship expertise) and diagnosis of genetic diseases.
Professor of Evolutionary Genetics in the Department of Zoology, Cambridge University. Head of the Molecular Ecology Research Group. Former associate editor of Molecular Ecology.
Per-Arne Amundsen is a Professor in freshwater ecology at Department of Arctic and Marine Biology, Faculty of Biosciences, Fisheries and Economics, UiT The Arctic University of Norway. His primary research interests comprise ecology of freshwater fish communities and ecosystems, ecological interactions including predation, competition and parasitism, trophic ecology and food-web interactions, evolutionary ecology and speciation, invasion biology, and management and conservation. He has been leading and involved in a number of research projects, including several long-term ecological studies of freshwater fish and lake communities and ecosystems.
Canada Research Chair in Global Change Ecotoxicology, professor of biological sciences, Université de Montréal. Director of NSERC CREATE network Mine of Knowledge.
Computational biology Staff Scientist, Aravind Group, at the Computational Biology Branch, National Center for Biotechnology Information, National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health (Bethesda, Maryland). Research interest includes studying protein structure, function and sequence, evolution of domains and biological systems to glean information about the biology of organisms.
Professor in the Department of Environmental Toxicology and The Institute of Environmental and Human Health (TIEHH) at Texas Tech University. Elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in 2005. Board Certified Environmental Scientist (BCES) by the American Academy of Environmental Engineers & Scientists.
Professor of Clinical Psychology at Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden. Also researcher at Karolinska Institute, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Stockholm, Sweden. Clinical psychologist at the ENT department, Linköping University Hospital. Linköping Sweden. President, European Society for Research on Internet Interventions; Past president and co-founder, International Society for Research on Internet Interventions.
My current research interests focus on the impacts that climate change will have on insect behaviour, ecology and physiology; insect community structure along environmental gradients; and insect-plant interactions.
I am currently Managing Editor of Austral Ecology.
Alexandre Magno Anesio is a Professor of Biogeochemistry in the School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol. He is also the Director for the Bristol Glaciology Centre. Anesio gained his PhD in 2000 from Sweden and came to the UK as a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow in 2003. His research interests are broad, and he combines concepts from Geography, Biology and Chemistry to understand the carbon and nutrient cycle in the cryosphere. In the past 14 years, Anesio has conducted fieldwork in the Arctic, including on the Greenland Ice Sheet and Greenland glaciers (e.g., Kangerlussuaq, Zackenberg, Tassilaq) to demonstrate the impact of microbial processes on a) albedo reduction, b) production, accumulation and export of organic carbon and nutrients to downstream ecosystems and c) the diversity and biogeochemical cycles of subglacial environments. He has secured grants as PI from a variety of sources which includes the UK Research Council (NERC), UK Charities (e.g., Leverhulme Trust, Nuffield Foundation) and the EU (Marie Curie Fellowship and Innovative Training Network). Anesio was elected the 2016 Distinguished Lecturer by the European Geochemistry Association.
Head of Mammalian Reproduction research group at the Central European Institute of Technology (CEITEC) & Head of Cell Division Control laboratory, Institute of Animal Physiology and Genetics AS CR.
Since 2014, senior research fellow and lecturer at the Institute of Applied Simulations of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW). Editor of BMC Evol Biol and PLoS ONE. In 2012 edited a book in 2 volumes "Evolutionary Genomics: Statistical and computational methods".
I received my PhD in Vertebrate Palaeontology from the University College London (UCL) and the Natural History Museum (NHM), London, UK. I notably specialize in the study of taxonomy, anatomy, and phylogeny of Mesozoic turtles. My current work is mainly focussed on Late Jurassic turtles from Europe.
Since Oct. 2015, I am a Senior Lecturer at the JURASSICA Museum in Porrentruy, Switzerland.
