Advance Your Career with ACS
Jonathan V. Sweedler. Ph.D.
Editor-in-Chief, Analytical Chemistry
James R. Eiszner Family Endowed Chair in Chemistry and Director, School of Chemical Sciences, University of Illinois
Professor Sweedler received his B.S. degree in Chemistry from the University of California at Davis in 1983, and his Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in 1989. Thereafter, he was an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University before joining the faculty at Illinois in 1991. His research interests are in bioanalytical chemistry, and focus on developing new methods for assaying the chemistry occurring in nanoliter-volume samples, and applying these analytical methods to characterize the molecular forms, distribution, and dynamic release of neurotransmitters and neuropeptides from a range of animal models. Professor Sweedler is Editor-in-Chief of the journal Analytical Chemistry.
Monica A. Cotta, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, ACS Applied Nano Materials
Full Professor, Physics, University of Campinas, Brazil

Carlos Toro, Ph.D.
Managing Editor – ACS Earth and Space Chemistry, ACS Photonics, and Chemistry of Materials
Dr. Toro earned his Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from La Universidad del Zulia (Venezuela), where he was started his academic 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 2014, he joined the ACS Publications Division as Managing Editor.
