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.

Patrick S Barber

My professional goals center around the intertwined areas of research and education within science. I am passionate about discovering new science that addresses global needs and sharing these discoveries with a broad audience. I'm committed to technical excellence and exploration in the laboratory and enjoy learning new techniques that increase the breadth of my interdisciplinary background. As a scientist and educator, I want to promote the power of the scientific method through discussion of scientific literacy across disciplines and increase the general awareness of the importance of critical thinking. I seek to develop a balance between my professional life and my personal life in order to maintain a well-rounded view which will result in increased communication, productivity, and organizational skills, as well as to being open to new ideas and cultures, and, ultimately, to contribute to my community and society.

Steven N Girard

Steven N. Girard is an Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater, where he teaches general and inorganic chemistry courses. He earned undergraduate degrees in chemistry and music from Lawrence University and a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from Northwestern University, and later was an NSF Science, Engineering, and Education for Sustainability Postdoctoral Fellow at UW–Madison. Buoyed by astute and enthusiastic undergraduate researchers, the Girard lab at UWW investigates nanostructured thermoelectric materials, sustainable synthesis of inorganic and nanostructured compounds, innovative new ways of blowing things up, and flux chemistry.

Jorge Gonzalez Garcia

I obtained my PhD from the University of Valencia (Spain) focused on Supramolecular & Bioinorganic Chemistry, in which I worked in metalloenzymes mimetics and anion receptors. Upon completing my PhD in 2013, I performed several postdoctoral research positions in the University of Kansas (USA) and Institute Curie (France), in which I specialized in the development of drugs for non-canonical nucleic acids such as G-quadruplexes, triplexes or i-motifs. Then, I joined the Department of Chemistry at Imperial College London as Newton Fellow to develop new tools to target and visualize G-quadruplexes in cells. I continued my projects as IdEx Fellow in the European Institute of Chemistry and Biology in Bordeaux (France). Actually, I’ve started my team in the Institute of Molecular Science in the University of Valencia, where I’ve developed novel systems and methodologies to target non-canonical DNA structures and unravel their biological roles.

Biplab Joarder

He received his Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Pune in 2015 on functional properties of biomolecule-based coordination polymers. He was an AITF postdoctoral researcher with Prof. George Shimizu at the University of Calgary followed by a JSPS postdoctoral fellow at Kyushu University, Japan. His current research endeavors are focused on developing inorganic and organic hybrid porous materials for energy and environmental applications.
