ACS Editors in Brazil
Top Publishing Tips
- Thereza A. Soares, Ph.D., Executive, ACS Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling
- Osvaldo N. Oliveira Jr., Ph.D., Executive Editor, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces
- Regiane A. Bracchi, Manager – Latin America, ACS Publications
Osvaldo N. Oliveira Jr., Ph.D.
Executive Editor, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces
Professor, São Carlos Institute of Physics, University of São Paulo, Brazil
Prof. Osvaldo N. Oliveira Jr. obtained his BSc and MSc from the University of São Paulo, and PhD from the University of Wales, Bangor (1990). He has led research into the fabrication of novel materials in the form of ultrathin films obtained with the Langmuir-Blodgett and self-assembly techniques. Prof. Oliveira is a founding member of the Interinstitutional Center for Computational Linguistics (NILC), a leading institute for natural language processing of Portuguese. In recent years, Prof. Oliveira has pioneered the combined use of methods from distinct fields of science, with the merge of methods of statistical physics and computer science to process text, and use of information visualization to enhance the performance of sensing and biosensing. This pioneering work is associated with the merge of nanotechnology with Big Data Analytics and machine learning. Prof. Oliveira is the vice-president of the International Union of Materials Research Societies. In 2006 he was awarded the Scopus Prize, given to 16 Brazilian researchers considered the most productive in terms of papers published and citations.
Thereza A. Soares, Ph.D.
Executive, ACS Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling
Professor, Department of Chemistry, University of São Paulo, Brazil
Dr. Soares holds a Ph.D. in chemistry with major in computational chemistry from the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil and a postdoctoral training at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland. Dr. Soares worked as research scientist the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (2005-2009), full professor at the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil (2010-2021) and held invited professorships at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland (2013), Umeå University, Sweden (2016), the National Institute Infectious Diseases, Japan (2019) and University of Oslo, Norway (2020, 2021-2026). Her main research interest is in the development and application of computational chemistry methodologies to understand molecular processes and to interpret experimental observations in soft matter with emphasis on bacterial lipopolysaccharide membranes.
Frank Quina, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, ACS Omega
Professor Titular - Departamento de Química Fundamental; Universidad de Sao Paulo
Prof. Frank Quina is the Professor Titular of the Department of Fundamental Chemistry at the Universidade de Sao Paulo. He was appointed an Associate Editor of ACS Omega in 2017. The laboratory conducts studies in the areas of photochemistry and photophysics of organic molecules, in particular of natural plant pigments (anthocyanins); the structure and dynamics of organized systems formed by detergents and polyelectrolytes and the modification of chemical and photochemical reactivity by such systems; and environmental chemistry (mechanisms of degradation and photodegradation reactions of organic molecules). The laboratory has specialized equipment for the study of the dynamics of electronically excited states (static and time-resolved fluorescence, nanosecond laser flash photolysis.
Regiane A. Bracchi
