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.
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.

Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Notre Dame. Associate Director of the Amboseli Baboon Research Project in Kenya. Elizabeth Archie received her PhD from Duke University. She was an undergraduate at Bowdoin College.
The goal of our research is to understand the evolutionary costs and benefits of social relationships, especially how these evolutionary consequences pertain to individual health, disease risk, and survival.
Our research follows two main strands:
* How do social organization and behavior influence the spread of infectious organisms, including bacteria and parasites?
* How does an individual’s social context influence their physiology, immune responses, and life span?
Associate Professor of Data Assimilation and Atmospheric Chemistry at the Department of Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Arizona (UA). He is also a faculty member of the following UA Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (GIDP): Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis and Applied Mathematics.
His research focuses on investigating human fingerprints in the atmosphere. His research combines numerical models and observations to study atmospheric constituents, especially those emitted from combustion-related activities, and how these constituents affect air quality, weather, climate, and our environment.
Ignacio Arganda-Carreras (Madrid, 1980) is a European PhD in Computer Engineering and Telecommunications by the Autonomous University of Madrid and holds a BSc in Computer Engineering from the same university. He took postdoctoral studies at the department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 2009 to 2013 and at the Jean-Pierre Bourgin Institute of the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique, Versailles, from 2013 to 2015.
During his doctorate studies he carried out research stays at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley (California, 2002-2004), at the Centre for Machine Perception of the Technical University of Prague (2005) and at the Applied Medical Research Centre of the University of Navarra in Pamplona (2006). He has worked as a consultant for the Max Planck Institute of Cellular Biology and Genetics in Dresden (2009) and for the Institute of Neuroinformatics in Zurich (2009).
Since September 2015 he is an Ikerbasque Research Fellow at the Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence of the University of the Basque Country.
Professor of Immunology and Basic Oncology; Center for Molecular Medicine and Stem Cells Research, Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of Kragujevac.
Assistant Professor of Computation Genetics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, NY.
Professor and Chairman of the Bioengineering Department and the Director of the Center for Environmental Sciences at Ege University (EGE CEVMER).
Research areas include Biofuels (biohydrogen, biomethane, bioethanol), valorization of waste organic material using biorefinery concept (biopolymer production), bioseparation, application of the industrial ecology concept in industry and environmental friendly production.
I am a Professor and Chair, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Faculty of Pharmacy, Cairo University, Egypt. I am interested in microbiome research, pharmacomicrobiomics, evolution and emergence microbial pathogenesis and resistance, microbial and phage genomics, antibiotic resistance surveillance, adaptive laboratory evolution, metabolic reconstruction and pathway gap filling, and virulence gene discovery.
Dr. Azizi Samir is manager at “Nanocomposites & Bioconcepts”, a company focusing on new innovative projects in green chemistry, environment and biomaterial sciences. After earning his PhD at the University of Joseph Fourier Grenoble 1, he accepted a position as researcher at the Royal Institute of Technology KTH Stockholm Sweden. Dr. Azizi Samir works on biopolymer nanocomposites and has published two patents and many scientific papers.
Bernard J. Baars (born 1946, Amsterdam) is a former Senior Fellow in Theoretical Neurobiology at The Neurosciences Institute in La Jolla, CA., directed by the late Gerald M. Edelman. Baars is currently an Affiliated Fellow.
He is best known as the originator of Global Workspace Theory (GWT), an empirical theory of human cognition and consciousness, developed with Stan Franklin as a computational architecture. A number of neuroscience groups in the US and Europe are pursuing this approach, including Stanislas Dehaene in Paris and Nikos Logothetis at the Max Planck Institute, Tuebingen. "Consciousness science" is now an established field, with a large brain and psychological literature.
In 2013, a major update called Dynamic Global Workspace Theory (D-GWT) appeared. (Baars, Franklin & Ramsoy, 2013, Frontiers). This work proceeds.
Baars served as a professor of psychology at the State University of New York, Stony Brook, where he studied laboratory-evoked human errors. The same factors plausibly cause spontaneous errors as well, a significant practical as well as scientific problem. Involuntary errors are directly relevant to the basic question of voluntary control.
Baars co-founded the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness, and the Elsevier journal Consciousness & Cognition, with William P. Banks.
Please see my 2015 article on Consciousness in Scholarpedia, summarizing the empirical evidence (which is often said not to exist... !).
