Dr Anat Milo joins the Editorial Board

Welcome to Digital Discovery!

We are delighted to welcome Dr Anat Milo, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel, as a new member of the Editorial Board of Digital Discovery.

“There remains little doubt that the path to a more efficient process for chemical discovery passes through organization, digitalization and curation of data and its broad distribution. The cherry on top is that we also get to use this data to gain a better understanding of the natural world.”

Anat Milo received her BSc/BA in Chemistry and Humanities from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2001, her MSc from UPMC Paris in 2004 with Berhold Hasenknopf, and her PhD from the Weizmann Institute of Science in 2011 with Ronny Neumann. Her postdoctoral studies at the University of Utah with Matthew Sigman focused on developing physical organic descriptors and data analysis approaches for chemical reactions. At the end of 2015 she returned to Israel to join the Department of Chemistry at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, where her research group develops experimental, statistical, and computational strategies for identifying molecular design principles in catalysis with a particular focus on stabilizing and intercepting reactive intermediates by second sphere interactions.
