I told my colleagues that PeerJ is a journal where they need to publish if they want their paper to be published quickly and with the strict peer review expected from a good journal.

Mohamed A Farag

Specializing in metabolomics, natural products chemistry, and plant biochemistry, Mohamed A. Farag completed his PhD at Texas Tech University, USA, in 2003.
Since 2009, Dr Farag has been working as a part time visiting professor at the Technical University of Munich, Germany, to participate in teaching plant metabolomics and chemomterics modelling for master students, and in 2009–2010 he held the Alexander von Humboldt fellowship at the Leibniz Institute for Plant Biochemistry, Germany. Dr Farag now works full time as a professor at the American University in Cairo (AUC) where his research work focuses primarily around applying innovative biochemical technologies (metabolomics) to help answer complex biological questions in medicine, herbal drugs analysis and agriculture.

Dr. Farag has been recognized with several awards, including Abd el Hameed Shoman award (2016), Egypt Higher State Incentive Award (2012), TWAS award in science diplomacy (2014), and the Mass Spectroscopy Performance Award, TTU, USA (2004). For his highly cited publications of 100 scientific papers with close to 3500 citations and an H index of 26, Dr. Farag was selected as a top researcher in the field of plant biology in Africa by the American society of plant biology, USA.

Tobias Kind

My research interests are in computational mass spectrometry, computational metabolomics and cheminformatics with a focus on structural elucidation of small molecules.

Before submissions to PeerJ Analytical Chemistry I recommend to study the Google Scholar or ResearchGate profiles of fitting editors and submit papers to those editors with similar interests. The submission system automatically guides and helps with that task. If you want to pick (or oppose) me as editor, please make sure to have the Analytical Chemistry subject area selected in the submission system.

For high quality submissions to me as an editor, I promise a fair and supportive peer-review process. That will include guidance how to improve a submission or reasons why I potentially would decline a submission.

Ananya Sen Gupta

Ananya Sen Gupta received her PhD from the University of Illinois in 2006, spent a significant part of her research career (2008-2012) at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and is currently an Assistant Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

She leads and directs multiple research grants focused computational innovations for shallow water acoustic communications, sonar target classification, and more generally, dynamic environmental sensing. Her algorithms have also been applied towards petroleum forensics, air pollution studies, tracking whistler-mode chorus emissions in the Van Allen radiation Belts, escaping local ion populations against solar wind in the Martian ionosphere, as well for separation of reaction wheel signature from magnetometer measurements in the e-POP spacecraft.

Her research for her Iowa EPSCoR project was featured in the ISGC 2015-2016 STIMULI EPsCOR report distributed to Congress. She has also received a collegiate-level teaching excellence award in 2015, three mentor awards from the Iowa Space Grant Consortium in 2016, 2017 and 2019, and a career mentor award from University of Iowa. Dr. Sen Gupta has served as a guest editor for the IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering and currently serves as an Associate Editor for IEEE Access, co-chair of the Technical Committee for Data Analytics, Integration and Modeling for IEEE Ocean Engineering Society, and a committee member for the Oceans chapter of IEEE Planet Positive 2030 effort.

Pawel L Urban

Pawel L. Urban received his MSc degree in biology from the University of Warsaw in 2002, and PhD degree in chemistry from the University of York in 2008. He conducted research stays in the University of Alcala, University of Warsaw, and ETH Zurich. The Urban’s laboratory was initially located in the National Chiao Tung University; then moved to the National Tsing Hua University. The team focuses on the development of enabling technologies for chemistry research and clinical analysis, their applications, as well as fundamental studies.
