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.

Nicola Carslaw

My work involves numerical modelling of air pollution chemistry, mainly in the indoor environment, and to a lesser extent, outdoors. My indoor air chemistry work involves investigating the chemical processes that cause high concentrations of air pollutants indoors, particularly those pollutants that are likely to be harmful to health. Topics of interest are the impacts of human activities on indoor air quality, such as cooking, cleaning and DIY activities such as painting. We also investigate the impact of emissions from common indoor materials such as carpet and wooden furnishings on indoor air quality.

Paul T Griffiths

NCAS-Climate researcher in atmospheric composition. Since 2009 I have been working on numerical simulation of the atmosphere, focussing on the chemistry of the troposphere. My main interests are in halogens, NOx and heterogeneous chemistry. I am also interested in model-measurement comparisons and ways to quantify and improve model treatments of atmospheric composition.

Łukasz Jaremko

Dr. Łukasz Jaremko is Associate Professor at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology.

Research in Dr. Jaremko's Molecular Diagnostics and Drug Discovery (MD3) group focuses on atomic-level insight into essential and topical questions from biochemistry and medicine.

James R Jennings

Dr Jennings obtained his PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Bath, United Kingdom in 2009. From 2009 to 2014 he worked as Research Fellow and then Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the National University of Singapore. In mid-2014 he was appointed as Lecturer in Applied Physics at Universiti Brunei Darussalam and has since been promoted to Assistant Professor and Interim Programme Leader at the same institution. His research to date has included characterization and modelling of mesoscopic solar cells (especially dye-sensitized solar cells), solar water splitting cells and water oxidation electrocatalysts, redox flow Li-ion batteries, and novel electrochromic devices.

Carmelo La Rosa

Carmelo La Rosa is a Professor of Physical-Chemistry at the University of Catania, Italy. He received a master’s degree in Chemistry and Ph.D. in Physical-Chemistry from the University of Catania (Italy), working on lyotropic liquid crystals. After completing postdoctoral training on thermodynamics and kinetics of protein folding-unfolding at the University of Catania and Leiden University (The Netherland), he joined the department of Chemical Sciences, University of Catania. His current research focuses on the biophysics of amyloidogenic proteins and their interaction with model membranes.

Jovan M Nedeljkovic

Dr. Jovan Nedeljković got his bachelor degree at the Faculty of the physical chemistry of the Belgrade University in 1984, and since then he has been employed in the Institute of nuclear sciences Vinča in Belgrade. Dr. Nedeljković obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1991 at the Clarkson University, Potsdam, USA. After that Dr. Nedeljković returned to the Institute of nuclear sciences Vinča, and in 1999 he was appointed as researcher professor. Dr. Nedeljković is the principal investigator in the field of nanomaterials. He has extensive international collaboration, and he worked in Argonne National Laboratories, and National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Under his supervision, 12 Ph.D. students graduated. Dr. Jovan Nedeljković published more than 170 scientific papers. Papers published by Dr. Nedeljković have been cited more than 6000 times, and his h-index is 40. Dr. Nedeljković is a referee for many journals. Dr. Nedeljković main research interest includes the development of colloidal methods for synthesis of nanoparticles of different type of materials. His research goal is to obtain nanoparticles with high uniformity and controllable shape (spheres, rods, wires, tubes), as well as to understand the size- and shape-dependent properties of materials at nano-scale. Also, the research interest of Dr. Nedeljković is a synthesis of nanocomposite materials using nanoparticles as building blocks (polymer-based nanocomposites, functionalized textile fibers, thin films, etc.).

Hans Martin Senn

Hans Martin Senn obtained his undergraduate and PhD degrees in Chemistry from ETH Zürich. For his undergraduate thesis project in 1996/97, he went to Imperial College, London, where he was supervised by Mike Mingos, who got him into (EHT and DFT) calculations. Back in Switzerland, he did his PhD with Antonio Togni at ETH and Peter Blöchl at the IBM Zürich Research Centre. After a first postdoc with Tom Ziegler in Calgary, he worked in Walter Thiel's group at the Max Planck Institute for Coal Research in Mülheim an der Ruhr (Germany). Since 2007, he has been a lecturer in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry at the University of Glasgow (UK).
