Paula Diaconescu joins ICF as Associate Editor

We are delighted to announce that Professor Paula Diaconescu (University of California, Los Angeles, USA) has joined Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers as Associate Editor handling the peer-review of submissions to the journal.

Biography

Paula Diaconescu joined the Chemistry & Biochemistry Department of University of California, Los Angeles, in 2005, after spending two years as a postdoctoral fellow in the group of Professor Robert Grubbs at the California Institute of Technology. She obtained her PhD degree under the supervision of Professor Christopher Cummins at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, working on arene-bridged complexes of uranium. Her earlier education was completed in Romania, where she obtained her BS from the University of Bucharest and worked on coordination complexes of transition metals and lanthanides at the University Politehnica of Bucharest. Besides awards received from UCLA, she received an Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship (2009), a Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (2014), and a Guggenheim Fellowship (2015).

ORCID: 0000-0003-2732-4155

 

Research Highlights

The Diaconescu research group is interested in various aspects of metal-ligand cooperation as stem from using ferrocene-based supporting ligands with applications ranging from small molecule activation to the formation of biodegradable polymers. Specific focuses of the group are redox switchable catalysis and biodegradable polymer synthesis.
