The event is free and open to all researchers studying the sciences. Register Now!


Kirk Schanze, Ph.D.

Editor-in-Chief, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces

Kirk Schanze is Professor of Chemistry and Chairman of the Organic Chemistry Division at the University of Florida. In addition, he is a Panel Member for the Research Associateship Program of the National Research Council. Dr. Schanze’s laboratory investigates the interaction of light with organic and organometallic materials. Specifically, the laboratory is developing state-of-the-science optical applications such as light emitting devices, fluorescent sensors, solar energy conversion, and non-linear optical phenomena.  In addition, Dr. Schanze has conducted considerable research on the development of thin film-based luminescent oxygen sensor materials to measure air pressure distributions in wind tunnel models.

Ellen Fisher, Ph.D.

Professor of Chemistry, Colorado State University; Senior Faculty Advisor to the Vice President for Research; Executive Editor of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces

Ellen Fisher is a Professor of Analytical, Physical, and Materials Chemistry and Chair of the Department of Chemistry at Colorado State University (CSU), serving as Department Chair from 2009-2014. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry and Mathematics from Texas Lutheran University (formerly College) in 1986 (summa cum laude) and a Ph.D. in physical-analytical chemistry from the University of Utah in 1991. After two years as a postdoctoral member of the technical staff at Sandia National Labs in Albuquerque, she joined the faculty at CSU in 1993.

Dr. Fisher has published over 140 original peer-reviewed articles that span diverse topics in plasma science, materials chemistry, chemistry education and the responsible conduct of research. She has served on the editorial boards of several technical journals in her field and is currently an Executive Editor of the American Chemical Society journal ACS-Applied Materials and Interfaces.
