Prashant V. Kamat, Ph.D.
Prashant V. Kamat is Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame. For the past 25 years, he has conducted research on the photochemistry and photoelectrochemistry of semiconductor nanostructures and sensitizing dyes. Professor Kamat seeks to build bridges between physical chemistry and materials science by developing advanced nanomaterials for cleaner, more efficient light energy conversion. His current research efforts focus on harvesting light energy using semiconductor nanocrystals and carbon nanostructures as conducting scaffolds. By tuning the photoelectrochemical response and photoconversion efficiency via size control of CdSe quantum dots and by facilitating the charge transport through 1-D architecture, his research group has provided a new and effective strategy to develop photosensitive electrodes for solar cells.
Professor Kamat earned his doctoral degree in Physical Chemistry from Bombay University and then conducted postdoctoral research at Boston University and The University of Texas at Austin. He has published more than 400 papers in peer-reviewed journals and edited two books on nanostructured materials. ISI’s ScienceWatch named him among the Top 100 Chemists of the decade 2000–2010. A Fellow of the Electrochemical Society, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and American Chemical Society, Dr. Kamat was honored with the Honda-Fujishima Lectureship Award by the Japanese Photochemical Society and the CRSI Medal by the Chemical Research Society of India.
Carlos Toro, Ph.D.
Dr. Toro earned his Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from La Universidad del Zulia, Maracaibo, Venezuela, where he started his professional career as a computational chemist. In 2010, Carlos obtained his doctorate degree in Chemistry (Material Science track) from the University of Central Florida, where he used multi-photon absorption spectroscopy to study the nonlinear optical properties of chiral molecules. Afterwards, Dr. Toro held a position as the Ellen D. Williams Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Maryland, where his research focused on the study of high resolution transient infrared absorption spectroscopy of molecular super rotors. In Spring of 2014 he joined the ACS Publications Division as Managing Editor of ACS Photonics and Chemistry of Materials.

Leaders in the field
Heather L. Tierney, Ph.D.
After completing her Ph.D.in Chemistry at Tufts University, Heather L. Tierney joined the Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in 2010 as the Managing Editor for ACS Nano and Nano Letters. In 2016, Heather began a a new role at ACS, as Managing Editor, Journals and Ethics Policy. In addition to managing the ACS’s two flagship Reviews journals, Accounts of Chemical Research and Chemical Reviews, Heather helps to provide guidance on best practice in publication ethics and policy in accordance with industry standards as set by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and other external agencies.
