Dr. Osorio is Chemist of Universidad Nacional de Colombia (1993), and obtained her M. Sc and Dr. Sc. in Chemistry at the same University in 1995 and 2001, respectively. She was research fellow in natural product chemistry at Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan (1998) and visiting scientist in biochemistry lab at Universidad de La República, Montevideo, Uruguay (2000), during her doctorate. After her doctorate, she did a stay at Technical University of Braunschweig, Braunschweig, Germany (2002), and has been visiting researcher at Department of Food Science & Technology, Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon, USA (2005) and Technical University of Munich, Munich, Germany (2018). Dr. Osorio started her academic career at Department of Chemistry of Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogotá, Colombia as Associated Instructor (1997); continued as Assistant Professor (1998), Associated Professor (2006), and currently serves as Professor since 2014. She is Deputy Editor of ACS Journal of Food Science & Technology, and has been a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry since 2016.
Liane M. Rossi, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, ACS Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering
Professor, Institute of Chemistry, University of São Paulo
Liane M. Rossi holds a BS degree in Chemical Engineering (UFRGS, Brazil, 1994) and a Ph.D. degree in Chemistry (UFSC, Brazil, 2001). After postdoctoral research experience in Brazil at UFRGS and in the USA at UNO, in 2004, she joined the Institute of Chemistry at the University of São Paulo (USP) and became a Full Professor in 2016. Her research interests in the field of chemistry and catalysis include the study of new reactivity patterns at metal-ligands interfaces, bimetallic and hybrid catalysts. The main catalytic processes currently under study are selective hydrogenations and oxidations, biomass conversion into chemicals, and CO2 capture and conversion. She currently serves as Director of the CCU Program at the Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Innovation (RCG2I), sponsored by FAPESP/SHELL/USP (São Paulo, Brazil). She is the author or co-author of more than 130 papers published in indexed peer-reviewed scientific journals. She is an Associate Editor at ACS Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering and an Editorial Advisory Board Member at ACS Catalysis.
Carlos Toro, Ph.D.
Senior Managing Editor, ACS Publications
Dr. Carlos 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 Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Central Florida, where he used multi-photon absorption spectroscopy to study the nonlinear optical properties of chiral molecules. Afterwards, he held a position as the Ellen D. Williams Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry 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 2014, Carlos joined the ACS Publications Division and is now Senior Managing Editor, overseeing nine journal titles with responsibility over their strategic development and management.
