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.

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.

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.).

Gavin J Phillips

Senior Lecturer in Natural Sciences and Academic Director of the Analytical Centre at Thornton. University of Chester.

Specialising in environmental science, chemical analysis and air chemistry. He is programme leader for the BSc Chemistry programme. His research interests include developing instrumentation, air chemistry and smart cities infrastructure. He is also the academic director of the Analytical Centre at Thornton, a facility where undergraduates can work with industrial partners on projects and gain valuable hands-on experience with state-of-the-art instrumentation.

Pedro J. Silva

I was originally raised as en experimental Biochemist. My PhD research centered on the biochemical characterization of the soluble hydrogenase of the hyperthermophile Pyrococcus furiosus. Eventually, the research focus broadened to include other metalloproteins from P. furiosus, which were characterized by biochemical, electrochemical and spectroscopic methods (electron paramagnetic resonance, UV-Vis spectroscopy, cofactor analysis, bioinformatics, enzymology, etc.).

After completing my PhD, I became an Assistant Professor at Universidade Fernando Pessoa (Porto, Portugal). My research focus then moved to the computational study of enzymatic and organic reaction mechanisms using quantum chemistry and molecular dynamics methods.

I have been an Academic Editor for PeerJ since September 2015, and Section Editor for its "Biochemistry, Biophysics and Molecular Biology" section since its creation in February 2018.
