We wish a very warm welcome to our new Chemical Science Associate Editor Tanja Junkers!
We are pleased to welcome Professor Tanja Junkers to the Chemical Science Editorial Board this month as a new Associate Editor for the journal. She has joined us from Polymer Chemistry where she remains as an Editorial Board member and will continue to serve as an Associate Editor and handle papers until the end of the year.
Tanja studied chemistry and graduated with a PhD in physical chemistry from Göttingen University, Germany, in 2006 and subsequently worked at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, at the Centre for Advanced Macromolecular Design as research associate. In 2008 she moved to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany. In early 2010 she was appointed professor at Hasselt University, Belgium, where she founded the Polymer Reaction Design research group within the Institute for Materials Research. In January 2018 she moved back to Australia where she became full professor at Monash University in Melbourne, and since then continues activities there. She remains guest professor at Hasselt University and her group is currently active at both locations. Her main research interests are precision polymer synthesis, use of continuous flow chemistry approaches, light-induced chemistries, polymer surface modification and investigations on kinetics and mechanisms of radical reactions.
Tanja is currently a Guest Editor for a themed collection on Sustainable Polymers which you can explore here.
