Welcome to Nanoscale and Nanoscale Advances!


Professor Janet Macdonald

We are delighted to welcome Professor Janet Macdonald, Vanderbilt University, USA, as a new Associate Editor working across Nanoscale and Nanoscale Advances.

Janet Macdonald received her bachelor’s degree in chemistry from McGill University, followed by a PhD from the University of Alberta in 2008. She joined the chemistry faculty at Vanderbilt University in 2011, where she is an associate professor of chemistry and a member of the Vanderbilt Institute for Nanoscale Science and Engineering.

Her research focuses on the phase selective synthesis of nanocrystalline materials, especially preparing non-natural phases of metal chalcogenides. Her group also studies fundamental charge transfer phenomena from semiconductor nanocrystals for solar-to-fuel technologies and photovoltaics, including specialized ligand synthesis to aid charge transfer.
