We are very pleased to announce our vice-Chair, Professor Christy Haynes, at Environmental Science: Nano – the new RSC Journal which investigates the impacts of nanomaterials on biology and
Christy Haynes is an Associate Professor at the University of Minnesota. Her research group focuses on the applications of analytical chemistry in the fields of immunology and toxicology, with particular interest in nanotoxicology.
Christy herself studied at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN, where she graduated with a major in Chemistry and minors in Mathematics & Spanish. She then moved to Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, for doctoral work in plasmonic nanoparticles, where she completed a thesis titled: “Fundamentals and Applications of Nanoparticle Optics and Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering.” Previous to her current position at the University of Minnesota, Christy completed post-doctoral research at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where she focused on applying microelectrode amperometry to probe single immune cell exocytosis. Christy has published over 80 refereed papers and in 2013 won the Kavli Foundation Emerging Leader in Chemistry Lecture to discuss her group’s nanotoxicology research.
Christy’s vast knowledge and experience within the nanotoxicology field make her a fantastic asset to the Environmental Science: Nano editorial board and we are privileged to welcome her involvement in the development of this new cutting-edge Journal.
