Introducing the newest members of the Analytical Methods Advisory Board

We are delighted to announce the appointment of 3 new members to the Analytical Methods Advisory Board.

 

Wendell Coltro, Instituto de Química, Brazil

Wendell Coltro is an Associate Professor at the Instituto de Química from Federal University of Goias in Brazil. His research focusses on the development of electrophoresis microchips, 3D printed microfluidic chips and disposable devices for bioanalytical and forensic applications, including rapid tests and clinical diagnostics. Wendell has published numerous papers in Analytical Methods and our sister journal Analyst. Read his most recent Analytical Methods article on “A fully disposable paper-based electrophoresis microchip with integrated pencil-drawn electrodes for contactless conductivity detection” here.

 

 

Lisa Holland, West Virginia University, USA

Lisa Holland is a Professor in the Department of Chemistry at West Virginia University. Her research group uses capillary electrophoresis and capillary chromatography to investigate physiological processes. There are numerous advantages to employing these miniaturised separation techniques, including high resolution of individual components, reduced solvent use, and the opportunity to develop them into portable and affordable devices. These techniques serve as enabling tools and methods to study disease, improve biological therapeutics, evaluate nanomaterials, and screen toxicity.

 

 

Zachary Schultz, Ohio State University, USA

Zachary Schultz is an Associate Professor at Ohio State University. His lab uses vibrational spectroscopy for label-free detection in biophysical and interfacial systems. Combining a range of technologies, such as nanostructures and laser spectroscopy, Zac’s research aims to detect chemical properties and image systems at the molecular level to solve problems in metabolomics, protein receptor signalling and active plasmonics. Zac was named as an Outstanding Reviewer for our sister journal Analyst for 2016. Read his most recent Analytical Methods article on “Multiscale X-ray Fluorescence Mapping Complemented by Raman Spectroscopy for Pigment Analysis of a 15th Century Breton Manuscript” here.

 

 

Analytical Methods is guided by an international Editorial Board and Advisory Board – more information on all our board members can be found on our website. We welcome the knowledge and expertise our three new Advisory Board members will bring to the journal and we very much look forward to working with them. Welcome to the Analytical Methods team!

Andy Wain – Our New Advisory Board Member!

We are delighted to announce our new Advisory Board member – Andy Wain!

Andy Wain is a principal research scientist for the National Physical Laboratory, allowing him to explore his research interests which include heterogeneous catalysis, electrocatalysis, electrochemical imaging and molecular spectroscopy. Whilst at NPL, Andy has been a part of the Electrochemistry Group and is also the lead scientist of a catalysis initiative focusing on supporting industry with state of the art catalysis methods. Andy received an undergraduate Master’s degree in Chemistry from Oxford University in 2003. Continuing his studies at Oxford University, in 2006, he obtained his PhD in electrochemical electron spin resonance spectroscopy. After finishing his studies in Oxford, he spent two years as a postdoctoral research associate at California State University Los Angeles. During this time, his research focused on novel electrochemical approaches to studying bio-molecule modified interfaces. In 2013, Andy became a chartered chemist (CChem) and in 2015 he became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC).  He has published three book chapters and over 40 papers.
