The following people constitute the Editorial Board of Academic Editors for PeerJ. These active academics are the Editors who seek peer reviewers, evaluate their responses, and make editorial decisions on each submission to the journal. Learn more about becoming an Editor.
Assistant Professor of Ecosystem Genomics in the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering and the BIO5 Institute at the University of Arizona. PhD in Plant Pathology from University of Arizona.
Georg Umgiesser has two masters degrees in oceanography and physics and a PhD in biomedical sciences. He is working at the CNR as a senior scientist.
Principal fields of investigation are hydrodynamic modeling, circulation and sediment transport. He has developed a series of finite element models for shallow water bodies (SHYFEM) for the study of hydrodynamic processes, water quality and transport phenomena. He has participated in various EU projects dealing with the North Sea and the Mediterranean, turbulence studies and application of 3D models. He was a visiting professor at the Kyushu University, Japan. He is also lead researcher at the Open Access Center of Klaipeda University. He is the Italian coordinator of the ESFRI project Danubius-RI dealing with study on river-sea systems.
Associate Professor at the Department of Molecular Medicine of University of South Florida, College of Medicine. Leading Scientist at the Institute for Biological Instrumentation, Russian Academy of Sciences.
