We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Nicola Pinna to the CrystEngComm Editorial Board,
Professor Nicola Pinna, based at the University of Aveiro, Portugal, and Seoul National University, Korea, has research interests in the area of nanostructured materials. His research achievements include work to develop new synthetic approaches to allow a more generalized synthesis strategy to inorganic nanomaterials via a ‘toolbox’ of well-known chemical reactions which can be used to prepare target nanoparticles using a sequence of predictable synthesis steps.
Nicola studied physical chemistry at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, and received his Ph.D. in 2001. He then moved to the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in Berlin, and a year later, in 2003, moved to the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam, followed by a year at the Martin Luther University, Halle-Wittenberg, as an Assistant Professor of Inorganic Chemistry, in 2005. Since 2006 he has been a researcher at the University of Aveiro, and since 2009 has held a joint position at Seoul National University.
