Academic Editors

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.

Susan M Bertram

My research addresses how genetic and environmental variation is maintained in sexually selected traits. My students and I use an animal behavior approach that incorporates tools from nutritional ecology, ecological physiology, and quantitative genetics. Our laboratory-based empirical research quantifies the phenotypic and genetically based variation in condition, life-history traits, and sexually selected traits and determines how this variation is influenced by diet and physiology.

Kevin J. Black

I am a neuropsychiatrist who also completed a movement disorders fellowship at Washington University. My research is primarily focused on neuroimaging and dopamine, especially in people with Tourette syndrome and Parkinson disease. I have also developed methods for structural imaging volumetry, analysis of brain images in nonhuman species, pharmacological fMRI (phMRI), and statistical analysis of anatomy-function relationships in deep brain stimulation (DBS).

Marnie E Blewitt

My primary research field is mammalian epigenetic control. My interests lie in using screens to identify novel epigenetic modifiers or new roles for known epigenetic modifiers, in order that we can expand our understanding of the molecular basis of epigenetic control. We study X chromosome inactivation in differentiating ES cells and early embryos, haematopoietic stem cells, neural stem cells and additionally study the role of the epigenetic modifier Smchd1 in the muscular dystrophy FSHD.
