Stefano Tonzani

Stefano Tonzani, PhD

Stefano received his PhD in chemical physics from the University of Colorado, Boulder, studying radiation damage from DNA and electron-molecule interactions. He followed this with a postdoc in nanoscience at Northwestern University, where he studied DNA conduction and block copolymer self-assembly. Moving to publishing, Stefano took a position as materials science editor for Nature, Nature Publishing Group’s flagship journal, in 2008. He also worked on the development and launch of Nature Communications, acting as the physical, materials, and earth sciences editor for this new journal. After a brief stint in market research for clean technologies, Stefano became the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Applied Polymer Science in June 2011.

Hilary J. Crichton

Hilary J. Crichton, PhD
Associate Editor

Hilary studied chemistry at the University of Edinburgh (UK) before completing a PhD on inelastic energy transfer in small free radicals at Heriot-Watt University (UK). In July 2004 she joined the publishing department of the Royal Society of Chemistry, working on the journals Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics and Faraday Discussions. In June 2008 she moved to the journal Nature Materials where she handled papers covering all types of soft matter, organic electronics and self-assembled systems. After a brief spell working at the European Science Foundation in Strasbourg, Hilary became an associate editor of the Journal of Applied Polymer Science in July 2011.

Jenny Mahoney

Jenny Mahoney, PhD
Associate Editor

Jenny studied physics at Fordham University in the Bronx, NY and received her Ph.D. in Physics from Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ, where she specialized in electron-driven processes and plasma technology. She then won a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship from the New Jersey Commission on Science and Technology and used nanotechnology to build ultraviolet light sources. Most recently, she conducted plasma physics research at the Center for Microplasma Science and Technology at St. Peter’s College in Jersey City, NJ and was highly involved in outreach such as teaching physics to undergraduate and high school students using hands-on experiments. Jenny joined the Journal of Applied Polymer Science team in December 2012.

Stefan Spiegel

Stefan Spiegel, PhD
Associate Editor

Stefan studied chemistry at the University of Mainz, Germany, and received his Ph.D. in 1995 from the Max-Planck-Institute for Polymer Research, Mainz, for his work on solid-state NMR investigations on polymeric systems under the guidance of H.-W. Spiess. He has worked as an editor of the Macromolecular Journals, including Macromolecular Chemistry & Physics, Macromolecular Materials & Engineering, Macromolecular Theory & Simulations, and Macromolecular Reaction Engineering, since 1997. He started working with the Journal of Applied Polymer Science team in 2013.

Mara Staffilani

Mara Staffilani, PhD
Associate Editor

Mara received her PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Amsterdam, Netherlands, for her studies on luminescent metal complexes for diagnostics applications. During her doctoral degree she spent two years in the research laboratories of Roche Diagnostics. In 2003 she moved to publishing to work as the Editor of Macromolecular Chemistry & Physics and Macromolecular Bioscience. She then took on the position of Managing Editor of Biofuels, Bioproducts and Biorefining journal and website in 2008. Since March 2013 she joined again the Wiley polymer journals as an Associate Editor of the Journal of Applied Polymer Science and Macromolecular Chemistry & Physics.

Emily Hu

Emily Hu, PhD
Associate Editor

Emily obtained her PhD at the Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences(Changchun, China). Before joining Wiley in 2012, she worked at the University of Washington in Seattle as a postdoctoral researcher.
