We are delighted to welcome three new Associate Editors to PCCP, Bo Albinsson, Luis Bañares and Henry F. Schaefer III. All three Associate Editors will start handling submissions very soon, so we encourage you to submit your best work to these Editorial Offices now.
Bo Albinsson is professor in Physical Chemistry at Chalmers University of Technology in Göteborg, Sweden. He is currently vice head of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering with responsibility for the graduate training (presently over 200 PhD students in four graduate schools) and will become the Director of the Chalmers Area of Advance for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology beginning in 2015. Albinsson has a long-standing interest in mechanisms for energy and electron transfer reactions with relevance for solar energy research and he has lately been involved in developing DNA nanostructures with photo redox active functionalizations. 13 students have completed their PhD under the supervision of Bo Albinsson and he has published over 120 refereed scientific publications in mostly high impact journals.
Professor Bañares is Chair of Physical Chemistry and Director of the Centre for Ultrafast Lasers at Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM), Spain. He received his PhD in Chemistry from UCM in 1990. Following postdoctoral research associate positions at California Institute of Technology (USA) and Universität Würzburg (Germany) with Fulbright and Alexander von Humboldt fellowships, respectively, he joined UCM as an assistant professor, associate professor and since 2007 as full professor. His research interests are related to experimental and theoretical chemical reaction dynamics and femtochemistry. His work focuses on the understanding of fundamental chemical reactions and photodissociation processes at a molecular level.
Henry F. Schaefer
Dr. Schaefer is currently Graham Perdue Professor of Chemistry and Director of the Center for Computational Quantum Chemistry at the University of Georgia, USA. He received his B.S. degree in chemical physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Ph.D. degree in chemical physics from Stanford University. For 18 years he served as a professor of chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley. His research involves the use of state-of-the-art computational hardware and theoretical methods to solve important problems in molecular quantum mechanics.
All three Editors will start to handle manuscripts soon, so we encourage you to submit now to these three new Editorial offices.
