We are delighted to welcome Professor Tanja Junkers (Monash University) and Professor Jeremiah A. Johnson (MIT) as Associate Editors for Polymer Chemistry!
Professor Tanja Junkers studied chemistry and graduated with a PhD in physical chemistry from Göttingen University. In January 2018 she became full professor at Monash University in Melbourne, she remains guest professor at Hasselt University and her group is currently active at both locations.
Her main research interests are precision polymer synthesis, use of continuous flow chemistry approaches, light-induced chemistries, polymer surface modification and investigations on kinetics and mechanisms of radical reactions. To find out more about her research read some of her recent publications below!

Professor Jeremiah Johnson is now an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry at MIT. He was previously an Editorial Board member for Polymer Chemistry.
His research focuses on researching molecular design in three primary areas: nano-scale materials synthesis, macro-scale materials synthesis, and development of new chemical methods for modifying interfaces between bulk and nanoscale objects (surface chemistry). The tools of traditional organic and organometallic synthesis, synthetic polymer chemistry, photochemistry, surface science, and biopolymer engineering are combined to realize the design of target materials.
