Italian delegate at the Arctic Science Forum Ministerial (Berlin, 2018).
Co-author of more than 150 scientific ISI publications, including well-renowned international journals of high impact factor (such as Nature, Angewandte Chemie, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Physical Review Letters, Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics). He has contributed to important review papers (Accounts of Chemical Research, International Reviews in Physical Chemistry, Progress in Surface Science, Advances in Quantum Chemistry).
Lead Editor of the Special Issues "Environmental Changes in the Arctic: an Italian Perspective" appeared on Rendiconti Lincei (2016, Springer) and "Mineral Dust: Sources, Atmospheric Processing and Impacts" appeared on Atmosphere (2018, MDPI).
Research in the ECT group is based on the chemical and morphological characterization of atmospheric aerosols in the urban, remote and indoor environments, vertical profile measurements of aerosol properties by tethered balloon experiments and aerosol source apportionment methodologies, implementation and optimization of chemical transport models (Lagrangian and Eulerian).
I am a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA. My expertise includes various spectroscopic (time-resolved and steady-state IR, UV-Vis, table top, synchrotron, and XFEL), mass spectrometric (TOF, quadrupole, ion traps), diffraction techniques, and ab initio calculations to probe structure, solvation and dynamics of biomolecules, aromatic hydrocarbons, and artificial photosynthetic molecules.
Prof. Antônio E. Miller Crotti is currently a Ph.D. professor at Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil. His research has been focusing on the use of mass spectrometry for the investigation of gas-phase fragmentation reactions and dereplication of organic synthetic compounds and natural products, as well as for the identification of their in vitro and in vivo metabolites. Also, he is interested in the biological activities of organic synthetic compounds and essential oils, with emphasis on the insecticidal, antimicrobial and antiparasitic activities.

Marc-André Delsuc activity is mostly oriented toward the use and improvement of spectroscopies, in particular NMR and more recently FT-MS. This includes new experiment design, development of data processing methods, development of software programs. I have been deeply involved in field as diverse as protein structural analysis, protein-ligand screening, complex mixture analysis, quantum mechanic details of the NMR phenomenon, automatic data analysis, fractal dimension of proteins and polymers, etc.
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.
Dr. Mahesh Gokara is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Cancer Biology at the Mayo Clinic. He has a Ph.D biochemistry with an experience of over 10 years in multidisciplinary research areas including biochemistry, biophysics and bioinformatics.
My group conducts research on new analytical methods and technologies, particularly in multidimensional chromatography mass spectrometry and NMR. I also have had a long history of research in metabolomics and the trace analysis of environmental pollutants in complex matrices. Recently I have extended my work to include forensic chemistry and I also have an interest in bringing technology to Chemistry Education. Check out 'Chirality-2' on the app store and Google Play or follow me on Twitter (@dr_oli_jones).
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.
Professor in Department of Chemistry, Iowa State University. Over 25 years of experience with over 80 publications in various fields of mass spectrometry including fundamentals, SIMS, ion mobility instrumentation, and proteomics. Current research interests include MALDI based mass spectrometry imaging of plant metabolites and forensic applications as well as analytical biomass pyrolysis especially with high-resolution mass spectrometry and dopant assisted atmospheric pressure ionization.
