ACS Resources and Closing Remarks
Thereza A. Soares, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, ACS Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling
Professor, Institute of Physics, University of São Paulo, Brazil
Dr. Soares earned her Ph.D. in chemistry with major in computational chemistry from the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil with visiting terms at the Scripps Research Institute, University of Houston and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Afterwards, she held a postdoctoral research position 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). 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 biological membranes.
Sonja Krane, Ph.D.
Senior Associate Publisher, American Chemical Society, Publications Division
Sonja Krane, Ph.D., is Senior Associate Publisher at the American Chemical Society. Following undergraduate and graduate studies in chemistry, as well as work experience as a medicinal chemist, Sonja joined the ACS Publications Division as Managing Editor of the Journal of the American Chemical Society. She currently manages a portfolio of thirteen journals and, in this role, she supports the strategic development of these titles and the implementation of editorial initiatives that enable the journals to excel in their fields. She has led efforts to launch new titles, including expansion of the ACS’s Environmental Science & Technology portfolio.

Nacole B. King, Ph.D.
Senior Physical Scientist, Government Accountability Office
Dr. Nacole King received her Bachelors of Science degree in Chemistry from Virginia State University (2010) and Ph.D. in Solid State Inorganic Chemistry from North Carolina State University (2015). Nacole studied the synthesis and structural characterization of metal-oxide semiconductors for application in solar energy conversion. Afterwards, she held a position as an Assistant Professor at Shaw University. She also served as National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Science Technology Fellow with the Department of Energy. In 2019, Nacole joined the Government Accountability Office in the Professional Development Program, and is now a Senior Physical Scientist in the Science Technology Assessment and Analytics portfolio.
Jeanne Garbarino, Ph.D.
Director of RockEDU Science Outreach at The Rockefeller University
Jeanne is the Director of RockEDU Science Outreach at The Rockefeller University. Along with the RockEDU team, she works to promote and support science outreach within the scientific community, open channels for everyone — scientists and nonscientists alike — to develop an appreciation for science as a human endeavor, and to provide equitable access to scientific resources and opportunities that genuinely reflect the process of science. She is deeply interested in how to build meaningful professional connections within the science outreach and engagement professional space, and to promote the continued professionalization of the science outreach field. Before becoming a practitioner of science outreach, Jeanne kicked off her scientific career as a lipid biochemist, earning her PhD in metabolic biology from Columbia University, then conducting postdoctoral studies on cholesterol transport at Rockefeller. You can find Jeanne on Twitter, Instagram, and in the woods (whenever possible). Say hi @JeanneGarb.
