Professor Neil Donahue joins as Editor-in-Chief

Welcome to Environmental Science: Atmospheres!

We are delighted to welcome Professor Neil Donahue, Carnegie Mellon University, USA, as the first Editor-in-Chief of Environmental Science: Atmospheres.




Different communities use different languages, even within science and engineering; physicists use a different language than chemists who use a different language than meteorologists. We are creating a forum to share the newest developments and advances in our understanding of the atmosphere with an audience including environmental engineers, chemists, physicists, and policy makers. We are providing a space where we can talk together and open collaborations between our communities.”




Neil is the Thomas Lord University Professor of Chemistry in the Departments of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, and Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University, where he directs the Steinbrenner Institute for Environmental Education and Research.

He received an AB in Physics from Brown University, a PhD in Meteorology from MIT, and postdoctoral training in Chemical Kinetics at Harvard.

His research interests span atmospheric chemistry, air quality, and climate, with a focus on radical-molecule reactivity, gas-phase reaction mechanisms, and the thermodynamics and microphysics of aerosol formation and growth.

Donahue is a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union and the American Association for Aerosol Research. He has won a number of awards including the Esselen and Pittsburgh awards from the American Chemical Society, the Charney Lectureship from the American Geophysical Union, and the Environmental Award from the Carnegie Institute of Science.

Professor Donahue has published many highly-cited papers throughout his career, and continues to be an influential and well-respected member of the atmospheric science community. Read some of his recent papers below.
