Heather L. Tierney, Ph.D.
Managing Editor, ACS Nano & Nano Letters
Heather received her Bachelor's degree in Chemistry from Assumption College in Worcester, MA. She then proceeded to complete a Ph. D. in Chemistry at Tufts University, where she used a combination of scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and density functional theory (DFT) to study the surface chemistry of a variety of systems including bimetallic alloys, molecular self-assembly, and single-molecule rotors. Heather joined the Publications Division of the American Chemical Society in 2010 as the Managing Editor for ACS Nano and Nano Letters.
