About the Editors

Chief Editor: Stephen Davey

After working on Nature Chemistry since April 2008, first as an associate and then senior editor, Stephen made the move to Nature Reviews Chemistry in early 2016. During his PhD at the University of Sheffield, and later at Imperial College London, he focused on organic synthesis and catalysis working on chiral nucleophilic organocatalysis. In 2004, he moved to Rijkuniversiteit Groningen in the Netherlands, investigating the synthesis and applications of light-driven molecular motors. In 2006, he joined the Royal Society of Chemistry as assistant editor of Lab on a Chip and the Journal of Environmental Monitoring. He is the launch editor of Nature Reviews Chemistry.

Associate Editor: Gabriella Graziano

Gabriella received her master degree in chemistry from Universit√° degli studi di Bari Aldo Moro with a thesis on the interactions between nanomaterials and intramembrane proteins. She then moved to University College London where she obtained her PhD in computational chemistry, focusing on the role of van der Waals interactions and nuclear quantum effects in layered materials. After a brief stay at the University of Cambridge, she returned to UCL, this time to the Earth Sciences department, where she performed computational studies of the melting processes of silicates and metal oxides under extreme conditions. Gabriella joined Springer Nature in June 2016 for the launch of Nature Reviews Chemistry.

Associate Editor: David Schilter

David was educated at The University of Sydney, where he completed B.Sc.(Hons) and Ph.D. degrees in 2004 and 2009, respectively. These studies were followed by postdoctoral work at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2009-2014) and at the Institute for Basic Science - Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (2014-2016), with his research spanning inorganic, organometallic and materials chemistry. David joined Springer Nature in August 2016 for the launch of Nature Reviews Chemistry.
