Meet our new Associate Editors

We were delighted to welcome Neal Mankad and Eric Rivard as Associate Editors to the journal in 2023. Read on to find out more about them and meet our full Editorial Board here.

Neal Mankad

Professor Neal Mankad, University of Illinois Chicago

Neal P. Mankad received his S.B. in chemistry from MIT in 2004 after having conducted undergraduate research with Prof. Joseph P. Sadighi on copper N-heterocyclic carbene complexes. In 2010, Neal earned a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from Caltech as an NSF graduate research fellow under the supervision of Prof. Jonas C. Peters, working on biomimetic and bioinspired complexes of copper and iron. During 2010-2012, he was an NIH postdoctoral research fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, with Prof. F. Dean Toste studying fundamental organometallic chemistry of gold.

Since 2012, Neal has been an independent faculty member in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC), where his group focuses on synthetic inorganic and organometallic systems relevant to chemical sustainability. Selected research awards earned by Neal include the Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship and the NIH Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award (MIRA). He has also gained distinction for excellence in teaching, including by the UIC Teaching Recognition Program.

Eric Rivard

Professor Eric Rivard, University of Alberta

Eric Rivard completed his Ph.D. at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Professor Ian Manners in 2004. After NSERC sponsored postdoctoral work with Professors Jonas Peters (Caltech) and Philip Power (University of California, Davis), and a research stay with Professor Cameron Jones (Monash University), he joined the University of Alberta in 2008 where he is now a Full Professor. He has given over 200 invited lectures worldwide and has published around 150 articles. He was the inaugural 2016 Michael Lappert Lecturer from the RSC, an RCMS Visiting Professor at Nagoya University (2016), an Alexander von Humboldt Experienced Researcher Fellow (2017), held visiting fellowships in 2015 and 2023 from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), was a Visiting Professor at National Taiwan University (2023), and won the 2018 Strem Chemicals Award for Pure and Applied Inorganic Chemistry (Canadian Society for Chemistry). The Rivard group studies fundamental low-coordinate and main group chemistry, catalysis, semiconducting material synthesis, and the development of phosphorescent materials and conjugated polymers based on inorganic elements.
