Library Life: Interview with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Librarian Ye Li

Ye Li is the Librarian for Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Sciences and Engineering at MIT Libraries. In her role, she supports researchers and students with finding, accessing, evaluating and disseminating research data and information, facilitating computational access and reuse of data and texts.

Tell me about your current role.

I am currently the Librarian for Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Sciences and Engineering at MIT Libraries. As a subject specialist and a member of the Libraries’ Data Management Services team, I support researchers and students with finding, accessing, evaluating and disseminating research data and information, facilitating computational access and reuse of data and texts, as well as organizing, managing, and sharing research data according to FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and reusable) principles. I strive to partner with researchers and other stakeholders of open science to cultivate good practices for reproducible research and publishing.

What is your background?

My hometown is in the mountains of Southwest China and I spent my undergraduate years as a Chemistry major at Beijing Normal University. I came to the U.S. in 2004 and obtained my Ph.D. in Chemistry and M.A. in Library and Information Science from the University of Iowa in 2009. In the same year, I started my career as a Chemistry Librarian at the University of Michigan. From 2016 to 2018, I led scholarly communications initiatives at the Colorado School of Mines. In 2019, I joined MIT Libraries for my current position.

How do you help to address challenges faced by your institution’s students and faculty?

The challenges I help our faculty, students, and staff to address are around research data and information. On one hand, they are overwhelmed by the amount and pace of new information and need to accurately find, evaluate and access research information at the point of need; On the other hand, our researchers need to disseminate their own research output broadly and efficiently to enhance the impact. As a subject specialist in the library, I am usually at the forefront of directly interacting with our faculty, staff and students to learn the specific problems and barriers, deliver instructions and consultations, and build partnership in teaching and research projects.

To come up with the solutions or make collective progress, I work closely with my library colleagues who have expertise in other subjects, data management and sharing, scholarly communications and collections strategies, information delivery and library access, digital library services, etc. I also connect with publishers, information service providers, open research infrastructure providers, professional societies and organizations, funders and other stakeholders in the scholarly information ecosystem to develop systematic paths forward rather than a one-off solutions to problems. I strive to contribute to a better environment for research and learning and also to cultivate more open and reproducible research practices.

What are some trends that you are observing in the library world right now?

My observation is from the academic librarians’ perspective, which mostly reflects the scholarly communication landscape in higher education. The pandemic accelerated the exploration of remote learning and research, but also surfaced the necessity of in-person interactions in academic life. Here are some trends in academic libraries to consider as we address the evolving landscape and emerging needs.

  • Digital-first has become a principle for decision-making in providing access to scholarly information and services, but tangible collections will still be important to consider for some disciplines and areas.
  • We must explore the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence in information discovery and knowledge creation. We must likewise facilitate computational access and use of data and information for data-intensive research and learning.
  • We need to develop prioritizing strategies to balance the investment in traditional purchasing and subscriptions with the investment in open publishing, open infrastructure, and value-added services from publishers and information service providers.
  • Open Science and Open Scholarship should promote equity and inclusion across disciplines, and we should partner with other stakeholders to make that happen.
  • Interest is growing in the area of cultivating open and reproducible practices for research and publishing throughout the research lifecycle.

You were also the program chair of ACS’s Chemical Information (CINF) division in 2021. What was that like?

Co-chairing the Program Committee of ACS-CINF from 2020-2021 has been a challenging but very rewarding experience. Coordinating divisional symposium organizers and speakers for the biannual international conference, ACS meetings & exhibitions allowed me to work closely with CINF members, officers, and ACS staff. With the disruption from the pandemic, all the existing timelines, logistics, and mechanisms needed to be reworked in a short time frame and everyone needs to stay nimble due to the fluid situation. I really appreciated all the diligent work of CINF symposium organizers and speakers, their willingness to be flexible, and the active participation of CINF members.

Our hard work really paid off. We were able to offer engaging programs covering hot topics, especially machine learning, FAIR data sharing, open science, and ethics in scholarly communications. The attendance of the CINF sessions was comparable, sometimes exceeded, what we observed before the pandemic. Taking advantage of the virtual conference, we were able to invite speakers who usually did not travel to ACS meetings. Being the Program Chair of CINF allowed me to learn the necessity of harmonizing our CINF members’ diverse research focuses around chemical information, data, and cheminformatics as well as the different perspectives from chemical information professionals, cheminformaticians, librarians, and publishers. I started to develop some strategies around it together with other CINF officers and hope to further that collaborative effort during my term as CINF Chair-elect and Chair in the next couple of years.

A very important question: Who is your favorite scientist?

I admire all scientists who are passionately curious and who are perseverant because of such curiosity. If I have to name individuals, it would be between Marie Curie and Nikola Tesla. They had very different styles and approaches but both were extremely curious about nature and ideas.

What is a fun fact about MIT?

“Hacking is a long-standing tradition at MIT and a part of its culture.” This is written in the official Mind & Hand Book. Here are two “Hack Etiquettes” to highlight: “Be Subtle – Leave no evidence that you were ever there” and “Leave things as you found them – or better”. Check this Wikipedia article or the MIT Hacks website for fun and famous hacks over the years.

Announcing the ACS Publications Diversity Data Report 2021

In June 2020, the Editors of ACS Publications journals wrote a joint editorial on addressing systemic racism in the chemistry community. That editorial made several commitments, including a pledge to gather and make public our “baseline statistics on diversity within our journals, encompassing our editors, advisors, reviewers, and authors.”

ACS Publications is now honoring that promise with a report of baseline data on the gender, racial, ethnic, and regional representation of our authors, reviewers, Editors, and Editorial Advisory Board members. This report supports our efforts to identify areas where representation improvements can be made by formulating targeted strategies to address bias in our journals.

A summary of the ACS Publications Diversity Data Report 2021 appears below.

Data Collection

The data for this report come from a recent survey of authors, reviewers, Editors, and Editorial Advisory Board members, as well as existing geographical data from these same groups.

Gender Representation

Men comprise the majority of every community reported on here, often by a ratio of 2:1 or more, compared with women, with nonbinary individuals comprising less than 1.5% of all communities.

Geographic Representation

Three regions are home to most people in the roles covered by this report. The majority of authors and reviewers reside in East Asia and the Pacific, followed by either the United States and Canada, or Europe and Central Asia. Most Editors and EAB members are based in the United States or Canada.

Racial and Ethnic Representation

Persons who self-identify as East Asian or White account for a majority of authors, reviewers, and editors. Respondents identifying as White comprise the greatest proportion of published authors, reviewers, and editorial positions, while those respondents who identify as East Asian represent the majority of submitting authors. No other group comprises more than 10% of any category.

Current Diversity Initiatives

ACS Publications has spent the past 18 months focusing on the specific diversity commitments made in June 2020, along with implementing several additional DEIR initiatives during this time. These programs stand atop continued efforts to diversify our Editorial Boards and a long history of diversity programs across the ACS.

In the Future

ACS Publications will use the data in this report to design and evaluate procedural and programmatic changes to address the systemic issues in peer review, editor selection, accessibility, and other factors affecting diversity in scientific publishing.

Learning to Communicate Inclusively: A New ACS Guide Chapter 

When done right, communication can open doors—it allows people to learn new concepts, meet one another, and share information. But often, we can unintentionally close doors with our communication when unconscious biases appear in the words and images we use. Language and images that alienate groups or perpetuate stereotypes create barriers between a communicator and their potential audience.

To break down those barriers and help advance a more diverse and inclusive culture in science, the ACS Guide to Scholarly Communication has added a new open-access chapter on inclusive language and images. The latest chapter is the ACS Inclusivity Style Guide, a resource developed by the American Chemical Society Communications Division and the Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Respect. Using accessible language and real-life examples, the new chapter helps readers learn to communicate in ways that recognize and respect diversity in all its forms.

The guidelines can be applied to all content to make it more welcoming and relevant, regardless of the topic. The chapter includes recommended language on gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity, disabilities and disorders, and more. It offers important context for each topic, including the background behind each recommendation and links to valuable resources.  Examples of topics the guide discusses include:

  • when to use the description “people of color,”
  • when to use the singular pronoun “they,” and
  • when to use people-first or identity-first language for health conditions.

The guide is primarily based on recommendations from advocacy and journalistic groups. Because language is ever-evolving, the guide will be updated over time to reflect changes in language and to incorporate new topics.

The ACS Guide to Scholarly Communication provides students, researchers, educators, and librarians with the instruction and advice they need to master the art of scholarly communication beyond the scientific journal. With the valuable guidance and examples provided in this newest ACS Guide chapter, readers can learn how to keep communication opening, not closing, doors.

To give feedback on this chapter of the guide, please email ISG@acs.org.

Takashi Toyao

Position: Assistant Professor
Institution: Institute for Catalysis, Hokkaido University
Hometown: Izumo, Japan

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest).

Heterogeneous catalysis, in situ/operando spectroscopy, machine learning

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

I hope to increase the visibility of the journal.

Is there a specific article that JACS Au has published thus far that you’re excited about or have found interesting, and why?

The following papers have caught my attention because polymer utilization and recycling would be one of the most important topics towards a sustainable society and have got much attention both from academia and industry.

Conversion of Polyolefin Waste to Liquid Alkanes with Ru-Based Catalysts under Mild Conditions
JACS Au 2021, 1, 1, 8–12
DOI: 10.1021/jacsau.0c00041

Catalytic Hydrogenation of Polyurethanes to Base Chemicals: From Model Systems to Commercial and End-of-Life Polyurethane Materials
JACS Au 2021, 1, 4, 517–524
DOI: 10.1021/jacsau.1c00050

What are the major challenges facing Early Career Researchers and how do you think these challenges could be addressed?

There is too much pressure for quantity over quality, both in papers and in other areas. There need to be bigger and longer-term funding opportunities for young researchers. There are too many meetings that are not for research or education. There needs to be a streamlining of current processes and division of labor.

Patrick Fier

Position: Principal Scientist, Process Research and Development
Institution: Merck & Co., Inc.
Hometown: Bettendorf, Iowa, U.S.

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest).

Pharmaceutical process chemistry; developing novel reactions and reagents.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

I hope to provide unique perspectives from a non-academic viewpoint and expand the involvement and impact of industry-based scientists across the broader chemistry community.

What are the major challenges facing Early Career Researchers and how do you think these challenges could be addressed?

Making a name for themselves and discovering breakthroughs in an increasingly competitive and fast-paced field. It is essential to ensure that potential unconscious biases against young researchers do not result in harsher reviews during the peer review process, or which papers are cited, or in the selection of individuals for broader recognition or opportunities.

Morgane Vacher

Position: CNRS Researcher
Institution: CEISAM Laboratory (Université de Nantes, CNRS – France)
Hometown: Lyon, France

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest)

I am a theoretical chemist, striving to understand better photochemistry, i.e. processes induced by light. To achieve this, we develop and use quantum chemical methods able to simulate how electrons and nuclei move on the fastest timescales (attoseconds, the intrinsic timescale of electrons) to longer timescales (femtoseconds-picoseconds, the intrinsic timescale of nuclei). Focusing on small molecules allows me to use very accurate methods.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

Being nominated for the first JACS Au Early Career Board was an honor for me. I hope to give constructive input to the conventional Editorial Advisory Board of JACS Au about emerging trends in chemistry and publishing, representing early career researchers but also the theoretical chemistry community in general.

In your opinion, what are some of the current global challenges that have to be addressed by your area of research?

Theoretical chemistry aims to simulate more and more complex systems to resemble reality as close as possible: molecules in solutions, proteins, surfaces, etc. while retaining accuracy and precision. Theoretical chemistry also aims to bridge timescales: how do processes on the attosecond timescale (the intrinsic timescale of electrons) affect processes on the picosecond timescale, and further on the millisecond timescale? Such outstanding questions require the development of efficient methods.

Ryan Stowe

Position: Assistant Professor of Chemistry
Institution: University of Wisconsin – Madison
Hometown: Jackson, Michigan, U.S.

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest).

My group works to understand how chemistry learning environments could and should engage all learners in authentic, meaningful scientific work. This program of research is highly interdisciplinary and draws from literature in science education, cognitive psychology, and discipline-based education research. Ongoing projects range from small-scale investigations focused on modeling student cognition to large-scale cross-sectional studies comparing transformed chemistry enactments that enroll thousands of students.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

I am excited for the opportunity to represent early-career chemistry education scholars as part of the JACS Au Early Career Board. In particular, I look forward to considering the characteristics of the highest impact chemistry education scholarship with the JACS Au editorial team and Editorial Advisory Board.

In your opinion, what are some of the current global challenges that have to be addressed by your area of research?

In my opinion, global challenges in chemistry education research include:

  • Understanding how learning environment features (i.e., curricular materials, assessments, pedagogical moves, peer interactions) can message to students that figuring out why phenomena happen is the goal (not learning about disconnected skills and facts).
  • Understanding how chemistry learning environments can support diverse learners in weaving together aspects of their lived experience into causal accounts for phenomena.
  • Expanding our definition of “success” in chemistry classes from quickly recalling canon to more authentic and meaningful performances (i.e., designing molecular solutions to pressing problems, figuring out the molecular underpinnings for phenomena).
  • Understanding how faculty, staff, and student instructors may be productively supported in designing and enacting chemistry learning environments that foreground equitable engagement in “doing science.”

Davide Michieletto

Position: University Research Fellow
Institution: The Royal Society
Hometown: Treviso, near Venice, Italy

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest).

In spite of their extreme length and confinement, our genomes are surprisingly well organized, functional and knot-free. This is achieved via sophisticated proteins that exert exquisite topological and mechanical control over the genome’s material properties. Inspired by this, my group aims to discover new DNA-based topological soft materials and complex fluids that can change properties in time. The group’s expertise is rooted in polymer and statistical physics and employs both simulations and experiments to answer our questions. We believe boundaries between disciplines were made to be broken, and we do our best to shatter them every day.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

I am passionate about transparent, reproducible, fair, open science. Being part of the JACS Au ECAB will be an invaluable opportunity to promote these values and shape the scientific direction of a prestigious journal. While JACS is perhaps the best-known journal by the chemistry community, it is perceived as less appealing to the polymer physics and biophysics communities. I think these are exciting areas of new research and I hope I will be able to encourage and attract more submissions from people in these fields.

In your opinion, what are some of the current global challenges that have to be addressed by your area of research?

Sustainability is in my opinion the biggest open challenge in material science, and I feel that bio-inspired design and materials are perhaps our best way to tackle it. I have always been fascinated by how nature solves problems and one that has a special place in my heart is the way nature folds our DNA to package 2 meters of genetic information in each one of our cells and to divide the duplicated DNA into daughter cells without the need to break it down at each cell division.

With new technology and sophisticated modeling, we are only now understanding how these remarkable feats are achieved and I hope we will be able to take inspiration from them to design space-efficient materials with tunable and responsive material properties that can be reused and recycled with little energy cost.

Sunkyu Han

Position: Associate Professor
Institution: Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)
Hometown: Pisa and Pietrasanta, Italy

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest).

  • Total synthesis of complex natural products
  • Natural products-inspired development of new synthetic methods
  • Natural products-inspired drug development

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

I hope that the newly launched JACS Au can cover the interests of scientists and engineers that were relatively left out (research fields, countries) in previous multi-disciplinary chemistry journals. I would like to contribute to making JACS Au more diverse, inclusive, and researcher-friendly. That is my primary mission as a JACS Au Early Career Board member.

Is there a specific article that JACS Au has published thus far that you’re excited about or have found interesting, and why?

This paper that discussed the synthesis, stereochemical analysis, and biological activity studies of ganglioside GM3 analogues containing monofluoromethylene-linked sialoside from the Sodeoka group drew my attention. The group established a strategy to introduce the monofluoromethylene linker in a stereoselective manner and showed its potential in future studies of ganglioside GM3.

What are the major challenges facing Early Career Researchers and how do you think these challenges could be addressed?

Under the tenure track system, there is little room for errors for early career researchers. Furthermore, early career researchers with fewer resources (manpower, equipment…) are expected to win the battle against other established researchers with more resources in the same arena. More emphasis on the qualitative aspect of research (impact, novelty, creativity…)  than the quantitative aspect of research (unnecessarily large number of examples, unnecessary mechanism studies, unnecessary data…) during the journal review process would help the early career researchers.

Yuan Qiao

Position: Assistant Professor
Institution: Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
Hometown: Shijiazhuang, China

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest)

My current research interests are about understanding the chemical underpinning of the gut microbiota-host interaction.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

It is a great opportunity to get to know my peers in the field in the Early Career Board. I hope to bring diversity and share experience in chemical biology to the team.

Is there a specific article that JACS Au has published thus far that you’re excited about or have found interesting, and why?

This is a nice work on fluorescent trehalose substrate for rapid and specific detection of mycobacteria.

Toward Point-of-Care Detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis: A Brighter Solvatochromic Probe Detects Mycobacteria within Minutes
JACS Au 2021, 1, 9, 1368–1379
DOI: 10.1021/jacsau.1c00173

In your opinion, what are some of the current global challenges that have to be addressed by your area of research?

The field of the microbiome has been greatly advanced due to DNA sequencing technologies, but there is still a great knowledge gap to be filled by chemists to address things at the molecular level.

Graham de Ruiter

Position: Assistant Professor
Institution: Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Schulich Faculty of Chemistry
Hometown: ‘s-Gravendeel, South Holland, Netherlands

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest).

Some of my research interests include the application of coordination chemistry in catalysis and surface chemistry, the chemistry of transition metal complexes, organometallic chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, small molecule activation, green chemistry, bio-inspired chemistry, and self-assembly.

In particular, the current research in my laboratory is directed towards driving sustainable catalysis through bespoke ligand design. To this end, we have developed a series of new PCNHCP pincer complexes of manganese, iron, and cobalt that show extraordinary activity in a wide variety of transformations. Our attention is focused on developing sustainable processes for aryl-aryl cross-coupling, alkene isomerization, acceptorless alcohol dehydrogenation, and small molecule activation.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

As a chemist and faculty member, I find it important to contribute to the global network of the American Chemical Society. It is important to frame the future of our international community in these exciting new times and together with other early career researchers map new directions where we say important development can be made. One way is being part of the ECAB of JACS Au.

The high standards of the ACS and in particular JACS, made it an easy choice to accept this honor. I hope to represent Israel in this international community and to promote that chemistry (or science in general) is not limited by set boundaries, whether it be based on country, gender, or discipline (e.g, old distinctions between organic chemistry, or phys. chem. etc.), but rather that it is all-inclusive. In addition, I hope to promote JACS Au in my community and help this exciting new open-access journal to become the gold standard in open access publishing.

Is there a specific article that JACS Au has published thus far that you’re excited about or have found interesting, and why?

There have been several articles that really piqued my interest, in particular articles that use earth-abundant metals to drive sustainable catalysis are really interesting to me. Some beautiful work was published by Prof. Walter Leitner that demonstrated the hydrogenation of carbon monoxide to methanol.

We recently started to work on manganese complexes with our PC(NHC)P ligands, so it is really stimulating to see such exciting research by these talented chemists. A recent paper that describes the mild reduction of carboxylic acids to alcohols was also recently reported, which equally piqued my interest for the same reasons.

What are the major challenges facing Early Career Researchers and how do you think these challenges could be addressed?

I think there are many challenges for early career researchers. Whether it is establishing oneself as a valued member in the community, which helps with getting grants and getting papers accepted, or coping with the general lack of resources, as usually we are not as well equipped as the labs that we came from.

I think that when submitting manuscripts, it would be a good idea to indicate on the online submission page if you are an early career researcher so that editorial staff can pay particular attention to your submission. Based on my colleagues’ comments, sometimes I feel that submissions may be just brushed off as not relevant for a given journal. I think that there are many more issues, but I think it’s good to discuss these on separate occasions.

Institution: University of Science and Technology of China
Hometown: Hengshan, Hunan, China

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest).

My lab at USTC focuses on the development of new synthetic methods based on the exploitation of new chemical reactivity of Lewis base-boryl radicals.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

To share experiences and perspectives on emerging topics of organic chemistry and I hope to bring strong expertise in organic synthesis and radical chemistry to the journal.

In your opinion, what are some of the current global challenges that have to be addressed by your area of research?

How to design new radical species (non-metal involved) as a catalyst to enable fantastic transformations, in particular asymmetric synthesis.

Jessica Ray

Position: Assistant Professor
Institution: University of Washington, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering
Hometown: St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest).

My research program bridges materials science and environmental engineering approaches to address pressing environmental concerns within the urban water sector. Specifically, we are developing novel materials to separate or degrade contaminants in waste streams and water sources. We use a lot of surface chemistry techniques to probe structure-function relationships, interfacial reactions, and physicochemical properties to characterize the materials we develop for their intended applications.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

I was thrilled to receive an invitation to join the JACS Au Early Career Board. JACS is such a prestigious journal, and the articles published by JACS Au have been of such high quality. I am honored to be able to contribute to shaping the scope, future direction, and access of JACS Au. I hope to contribute my equity lens to increase the diversity of publication subject matter and author disciplines and backgrounds.

What are the major challenges facing Early Career Researchers and how do you think these challenges could be addressed?

One of the major challenges facing current Early Career Researchers is navigating the initial stages of their research during the pandemic. Starting a tenure-track position is already challenging. The uncertainty and rapidly changing conditions in academia are hard to manage while trying to stabilize your research program, teaching responsibilities, etc. To help Early Career Researchers handle their new roles, particularly during the pandemic, I believe it is crucial to develop mentorship networks with other faculty within and outside of your institution to provide advice and guidance.

Eva Blasco

Position: Junior Professor (with tenure-track to full Professor) since October 2020
Institution: Heidelberg University, Germany
Hometown: Teruel, Spain

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest)

Our research group focuses on the design and synthesis of new polymer-based functional materials with application in 3D/4D printing. The additional dimension (time) refers to the ability of a 3D printed object to change its properties over time in a controlled fashion. One can imagine it as the addition of “life-like” behavior to the printed objects. This is an emerging research field with promising applications in many areas, ranging from optics and sensing to biomedicine and soft robotics.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

I joined the JACS Au Early Career Board because I believe that this is a great opportunity to get more insights into the publishing world and to expand my network. In addition, I find it very attractive that JACS Au aims to publish works across all the chemistry disciplines and follows the JACS tradition of underlining work with a broad impact in the community. And very importantly, it is an open-access journal.

What are the major challenges facing Early Career Researchers and how do you think these challenges could be addressed?

One of the many challenges of early career researchers is publishing. Very often, we are being evaluated (new a faculty position, project grants, etc.) and the publication records have still a big influence. Thus, we all, and especially early career researchers, are under time pressure to publish our findings. I personally think that moving towards effective, fair, and transparent review processes is very important. In addition, I find it beneficial for early career researchers to receive support in different ways: e.g., enhancing their visibility by highlighting their research in special issues and features or engaging them on editorial boards.

Robert Chapman

Position: Lecturer in Chemistry
Institution: University of Newcastle, Australia,
Hometown: Sydney, Australia

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest).

My group is interested in making polymer mimics of therapeutically active proteins. We do this by using high throughput polymer synthesis and screening to unpick how a polymer’s structure affects function and to learn how to fold polymers in order to control the presentation of biologically relevant epitopes in solution.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

Open access is building momentum and I want to support the ACS’s agenda of ensuring that the top open access chemistry journals are owned by the societies, for the benefit of their members, and built on high-quality peer review and editorial supervision. This is what gives readers confidence in the quality of what is published. Already we’ve seen JACS Au’s commitment to publishing more broadly across the field of chemistry than perhaps JACS has traditionally been able to do, and I think this could be a great journal for the very best of polymer chemistry and physics to meet. I am keen to advocate for this from both within the journal and the polymer community.

Is there a specific article that JACS Au has published thus far that you’re excited about or have found interesting, and why? 

I am fascinated by the giant polymers that Xue-Hui Dong and coworkers showed in one of the first issues. They used the iterative exponential chain growth mechanism pioneered by Johnson and coworkers to prepare sequence-controlled oligomers (up to 16 units long) of a set of silsesquioxane monomers. The self-assembly behavior of the amphiphilic versions of these polymers was similar to the ’small monomer’ counterparts but they showed much greater stability. I’m looking forward to seeing whether this class of materials might enable improved control over the internal structure of polymeric nanoparticles.

What are the major challenges facing Early Career Researchers and how do you think these challenges could be addressed?

Finding exciting questions that are answerable with the limited resources and time available. To do this we need to read broadly, build collaborations, and grow networks where we are constantly bouncing ideas around. We need our funding agencies to reserve more of their budgets to ‘take the risk’ on groups of ECRs that bring together complementary skills to explore out-of-the-box ideas.

Yi-Tsu Chan

Position: Professor
Institution: Department of Chemistry, National Taiwan University
Hometown: Taipei, Taiwan

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest).

My research interests include supramolecular coordination chemistry and polymer chemistry. Our research group is enthusiastic about developing a novel molecular self-assembly methodology for the rational construction of functional supramolecular architectures and polymeric materials.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

  • Curiosity about how the prominent editorial team manages and develops a successful journal
  • To contribute to the society of supramolecular chemistry and polymer science
  • I would help identify emerging research topics based on my expertise, encourage talented young researchers to submit their best papers, and advertise JACS Au in our research community.

What are the major challenges facing Early Career Researchers and how do you think these challenges could be addressed?

  • Finding a research topic with scientific impacts. A thorough literature survey will help evaluate the importance of a research topic. Try to find a secret spot that has not been addressed before.
  • Lack of self-confidence. Do not let rejection destroy your confidence. It is important to be committed to your own work. Before submitting a manuscript, having comments from your senior colleagues would be helpful.
  • Discouraged by inappropriate evaluation. Pressure to publish and the publication metrics used to judge scientific achievements would discourage junior researchers from tackling grand scientific challenges. Do not get trapped by an unhealthy evaluation system before you can reconstruct it.

Caroline E. Paul

Position: Assistant Professor
Institution: Department of Biotechnology at Delft University of Technology
Hometown: Toronto, Canada, and Aix-en-Provence, France

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest).

My current area of research is Biocatalysis, more specifically using the exquisite selectivity of enzymes to catalyze oxidation and reduction reactions using artificial cofactors for synthetic organic chemistry.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

I am excited to join the JACS Au Early Career Board for the opportunity to experience the development of a new multidisciplinary journal that is fully open access and to gain a working knowledge of such a high standard journal that reaches across different fields. I hope to bring my insights and perspective of the diverse Biocatalysis field to the team, its exciting cross-disciplinary developments and promote JACS Au across generations.

Is there a specific article that JACS Au has published thus far that you’re excited about or have found interesting, and why? 

I came across the recently published article Rapid Screening of Diverse Biotransformations for Enzyme Evolution in JACS Au, which allows the screening of various biocatalytic reactions and new biocatalysts, always exciting in my field!

In your opinion, what are some of the current global challenges that have to be addressed by your area of research?

I believe some of the current global challenges that have to be addressed by Biocatalysis are developing greener chemical routes, using CO2 as feedstock, producing biofuels. Overall, some challenges can be tackled by:

  • Reducing chemical waste with more efficient and selective biocatalytic processes, increasing enzyme activity for higher space-time yields through bioinformatics and engineering.
  • Finding complementary synthetic chemical routes by expanding the biocatalyst portfolio through enzyme discovery and evolution, tapping into understanding enzyme mechanisms.

Another focus should be the use of enzymes to tackle the degradation of microplastics and polymers, but also the production of new biodegradable polymers.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

A chance to contribute to ACS journals with rich history such as JACS. Hope to raise awareness in interdisciplinary research at the intersection between science and engineering.

Is there a specific article that JACS Au has published thus far that you’re excited about or have found interesting, and why?

I enjoy reading the recent work by Rorrer, Beckham, and Roman-Leshkov on polyolefin hydrogenolysis.

In your opinion, what are some of the current global challenges that have to be addressed by your area of research?

I think finding ways to make materials more sustainably, for example, by utilizing low-value wastes will be an important problem in the future.

Daiana Capdevila

Position: Laboratory Head
Institution: Leloir Institute (FIL-IIBBA)
Hometown: Buenos Aires, Argentina

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest).

The main goal pursued in my laboratory is to use a family of transcriptional repressors that regulate stress responses in bacteria as model systems for molecular evolution in antibiotic-resistant bacteria. We apply NMR approaches to study the atomic details of how allostery works in a family of transcriptional regulators responsive to different inorganic species that the human host harness to clear bacterial infections. We focus on transcriptional regulators that determine the homeostasis in bacteria of transition metal ions (metallostasis) and reactive sulfur species.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

As an early career chemist from the global south, I want to get involved in re-thinking scientific publishing. I firmly believe that open access journals from scientific societies can be a valuable tool to remove the barriers in the way of science. I hope I can bring the voice and the ideas of a lot of great young scientists from developing countries on what we need to publish more open access cross-disciplinary research in chemistry.

In terms of research, I hope I can bring the perspective that a broader idea of what chemistry is will make our research more interesting and more impactful, without sacrificing the rigor and the exquisite detail that chemistry approaches and methods have.

Is there a specific article that JACS Au has published thus far that you’re excited about or have found interesting, and why?

My favorite article so far is Local Mutations Can Serve as a Game Changer for Global Protein Solvent Interaction by Ellen M. Adams, Simone Pezzotti, Jonas Ahlers, Maximilian Rüttermann, Maxim Levin, Adi Goldenzweig, Yoav Peleg, Sarel J. Fleishman, Irit Sagi, and Martina Havenith.

My laboratory is very interested in method development for monitoring the role of solvent in entropic contribution to ligand binding. Terahertz spectroscopy is a fantastic tool for monitoring solvent contribution at the protein surface. This work is a first step towards understanding how protein sequence can determine solvent entropy which I think is an exciting area of future research. It is a great example of how developing new methodologies can occur in parallel to answering interesting biological questions. To me, this paper captures the broad perspective of chemists that JACS Au aims to portray.

In your opinion, what are some of the current global challenges that have to be addressed by your area of research?

As a chemist working at the molecular level in infectious diseases funding new antibiotic strategies is one of the main challenges that come to mind.

As a structural biologist working in a developing country, I think that we need to figure out how to guarantee that everyone with motivation and good ideas can access state-of-the-art techniques that can make their research transformative and interesting for the global community. The more diverse the scientific community is the richer and more transformative our science becomes; humanity needs to tackle very complicated problems this century and we need everyone involved in finding those solutions.

As a physical chemist working on biological systems, I am particularly interested in making physical chemistry techniques (such as NMR and calorimetry) accessible and readily available for answering chemical biology and microbiology question. I believe that interdisciplinary research is the more effective way to address how organisms adapt to an ever-changing environment.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

It is a golden opportunity to learn and to understand publishing from the inside. I believe I can bring my enthusiasm for chemical biology and my multidisciplinary background.

In your opinion, what are some of the current global challenges that have to be addressed by your area of research?

The precise understanding of biology to be able to control it on demand.

Abhishake Mondal

Position: Assistant Professor
Institution: Solid State and Structural Chemistry Unit, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India
Hometown: Kolkata, India

Describe your current area of research (or areas of interest).

We are a young research group located at the Solid State and Structural Chemistry Unit in the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India, working in the field of Magnetic Materials and Switches. Molecular Magnetism constitutes a highly dynamic interdisciplinary field. With the fine blend of experimental physics and theoretical chemistry emerging from coordination chemistry fundamentals, we explore the frontiers of modern themes in the most prominent multifunctional molecular materials. The design and synthesis of Stimuli-responsive Switchable Magnetic Materials based on transition metals, particularly materials displaying magnetic, electric, and/or optical bistabilities such as spin crossover (SCO), single-molecule magnets (SMMs), single-chain magnets (SCMs), metal-to-metal electron transfer systems, valence-tautomeric systems, organic radicals-based magnetic systems, and their applications towards spintronics, MEMS, NEMS devices, etc. are the hot areas of research being studied in our group.

What made you want to join the JACS Au Early Career Board and what do you hope to bring to the team?

JACS Au is one of the best prestigious open-access journals covering the broad spectrum of research held in Chemical Sciences. The journal serves as a stage to bring people from various interests come together and explore the possibilities for collaborative research. We are a young research group working in Molecular Magnets and Switches based on Switchable systems. Our colleagues indulged in an essential area of research yielding high-impact research. The massive peer-reviewed articles with lesser available articles in JACS Au focusing on Molecular Magnetism motivated me to bring the highly interdisciplinary field to the prestigious platform of JACS Au.

Is there a specific article that JACS Au has published thus far that you’re excited about or have found interesting, and why?

The articles published in JACS Au are of utmost scientific curiosity to researchers, where a few recent articles published in 2020 and 2021 have attracted my interest owing to the similarity of the field.

What are the major challenges facing Early Career Researchers and how do you think these challenges could be addressed?

As a young research group, the following hurdles are faced by most of the groups despite being involved in high impact research:

  • Procuring the funding for the successful conduction of any project is a bottleneck
  • Limited access or unavailability of special sophisticated and dedicated equipment in the highly interdisciplinary field is also quite challenging
  • As a new group, publishing exciting results in high-impact journals is pretty challenging due to a lack of exposure and experience in the field. We would be working together with JACS Au to overcome the mentioned barrier in communicating interesting results to the targeted community.

2022 James J. Morgan Environmental Science & Technology Early Career Award Winners Announced

The James J. Morgan Environmental Science & Technology Early Career Award, named after the first Editor-in-Chief of Environmental Science & Technology, recognizes those early career researchers who are standing on our shoulders.

This year, we received a significant number of nominations for the James J. Morgan Early Career Award from Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Please join us in congratulating the 2022 James J. Morgan Early Career Award winners:

  • Gang Liu, University of Southern Denmark, Denmark
  • Denise M. Mitrano, ETH Zürich, Switzerland
  • Peng Zhang, University of Birmingham, U.K.
  • Matthieu Riva, I’IRCELYON, France

Learn more about the winners, and what this means to them below.

Professor Gang Liu, University of Southern Denmark, Denmark

Tell us about yourself.

I am a Professor of Industrial Ecology at the University of Southern Denmark. I am Chinese but have been living and working in the Nordic circle since 2008, first in Norway and then in Denmark. With this background and combining the significant environmental challenges in China and the sustainability-oriented mindset embedded in the Scandinavian culture, research, and education, it is a dream job to be a professor on environmental sustainability at a research university.

What does this award mean to you?

It is my great honor to receive this James J. Morgan Early Career Award. It means a lot to me to be acknowledged by the most reputed journal in our field. I can still remember the cheerful moments during my Ph.D. when my work got published in Environmental Science & Technology and later awarded runner-up Best Paper. In the past years, my research group has always put it as our primary target journal. Furthermore, I feel particularly grateful to receive this award named after James J. Morgan, who is the founding Editor-in-Chief of this journal and a great scientist who had inspired so many researchers (including me) to be creative and try new pathways. Last but not least, this award gives me an opportunity to acknowledge my mentors, colleagues, and students who have helped me along the way.

What are you working on now?

My main field is industry ecology, which is an emerging multidisciplinary field that studies materials and energy stocks and flows through industrial systems and is often recognized as the science for circular economy and sustainability. In short, I have been developing and applying different systems approaches for addressing complex environmental problems such as climate change, resource and waste management, and urban sustainability and informing the societal circular, low carbon, and just transition. Empirical case studies in recent years include sustainable metal cycles, agrifood chains, urban systems, and low-carbon technologies.

What advances are you hoping to see in your field in the next decade?

There are many technological advances that I hope to see in my field in the next decade, including further methodology integration from various disciplines and more automated data generation (e.g., using big data) and analysis facing urgent and increasing sustainability challenges. However, most often, we already have the technologies, solutions, and understanding on addressing these challenges, be it climate or resource-related. Therefore, I would particularly like to see how such knowledge can be implemented in the real world and used to inform governmental and industry policy and actions in the next years.

Can you share some advice for other young investigators?

As young investigators, you should always aim high and dream big. You may sometimes feel lonely when walking on the forest trails (than on the crowded highways), but as James J. Morgan demonstrated, new pathways and ideas can lead to new directions that are necessary for addressing our complex environmental problems. As our global challenges get increasingly intertwined, I think systemic and multidisciplinary efforts are also increasingly needed. So be prepared to get out of the box and be open to theories, methods, and data from other disciplines for common sustainability purposes.

Where do you hope to see your career 10 years from now?

2030 is a year that many of our resource, climate, and sustainability-related targets are benchmarked, including the United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. So, I hope in 10 years, together with other researchers working on sustainable systems, we can say our research has made an impact in this successful journey.

Professor Denise M. Mitrano, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

Tell us about yourself.

As an environmental analytical chemist, my research focuses on the distribution and impacts of anthropogenic materials in technical and environmental systems. I am particularly interested in developing analytical tools to systematically understand the mechanisms and processes driving the fate, transport, and biological interactions of particles, such as engineered nanomaterials and nano- and microplastics. In this context, my research group uses these results to assess the risks of anthropogenic materials across various ecosystems and scales. I have an interest in a “safer by design” approach for both nanomaterials and plastics, which is exemplified by working on the boundaries of environmental science, materials science, and policy to promote sustainability and environmental health and safety of new materials.

The thing I like most about being an analytical chemist is that other researchers are able to use our methods and take them even further to better investigate their own research objectives. In a way, this amplifies my contributions across the field of environmental sciences to provide others with the tools to answer their most interesting questions, in addition to carrying out our own research objectives. Being an expert in nanometrology has allowed me to collaborate across many different research fields with colleagues whose expertise is very different than mine, and so I’m constantly able to learn about new areas of science.

What does this award mean to you?

It is both exciting and humbling for my work to be recognized by receiving this years’ James J. Morgan Early Career Award and to have my name be listed amongst the other excellent up-and-coming researchers in the field of environmental sciences. I am very passionate about the work that we do in my lab but also inspired by the amazing students who work alongside me and thankful for my mentors and colleagues who have helped shape my career and outlook to date.

What are you working on now?

I have been very interested in applying the skills and process understanding I gained in studying engineered nanomaterials to different particulate materials of emerging concern, including plastics.  However, analytically, measuring plastics can be very different and more challenging than inorganic (nano)particles. Therefore, I developed a new approach to synthesize nano- and microplastics doped with a trace metal to more easily and quickly quantify them in complex matrices using techniques that are more standardized for metals analysis, including ICP-MS and single-particle ICP-MS.  By using the metal as a proxy for the plastics, we can spike them into a variety of laboratory and pilot-scale facilities, which has allowed us to investigate the fate and transport of plastics in environmental systems (waterways, porous media), wastewater, and drinking water treatment plants and to study biological uptake and interactions of nano- and microplastics. This approach has opened up a completely new avenue for those studying plastic pollution and has provided many new opportunities for collaboration with other research groups.

Can you share some advice for other young investigators?

Be brave and think outside the box! As a young scientist, you have the opportunity to focus on a new field and develop innovative methods that are not yet established. This may entail risks, but in the best-case scenario, you can become a pioneer in your own field.

Perhaps the two things which have helped my professional success the most are to keep an open mind and to ask many questions. This has opened the door for a lot of new ideas and collaborations which wouldn’t have come about if I were solely focused on my day-to-day work. Naturally, learning to balance the demands of organizing multiple projects on different topical subjects simultaneously took time, but in the end, I feel that I am gaining an increasingly holistic view of my field, which helps me to better identify key research gaps and develop better research objectives.

Where do you hope to see your career 10 years from now?

On a day-to-day basis, to me, science, especially analytical method development, is about problem-solving and the excitement when you have finally accomplished a difficult puzzle (sometimes after much trial and error!). But the implications of our work go beyond the laboratory. The natural environment is experiencing ever-increasing pressures from anthropogenic stressors. Understanding how human activities influence physical, chemical, and biological cycles is a central component of modern geosciences, and I find it very rewarding to contribute knowledge that can lead towards the protection of our waterways and soils. In the future, I hope to continue to bridge academic science with other stakeholders from policy, industry, and the public to make scientifically informed decisions about the materials we use and how this impacts the natural environment.

What does this award mean to you?

The James J. Morgan Environmental Science & Technology Early Career Award aims to recognize the early career researchers who are initiating and creating new ideas consistent with Morgan’s contributions in environmental chemistry. As a result, I am greatly honored to be awarded the James J. Morgan Early Career Award and to be associated with such an outstanding pioneer who inspired and inspires many (young) scientists. This award is also the recognition of the support and research excellence of my mentors, students, postdoctoral researchers, collaborators, and colleagues. So, I would like to thank all of them for inspiring me.

What are you working on now?

I am currently pursuing the analytical developments initiated in the last two years and using this newly developed technology to better characterize the chemical processes governing the formation and growth of newly formed particles.

What advances are you hoping to see in your field in the next decade?

The main advances that I would hope in my chosen research area would be to direct research efforts toward studying the impacts of Global Warming on the global ecosystem in link with atmospheric chemistry. For example, upon environmental stress or the development of pathogen/parasite-induced diseases, living ecosystems emit a wide variety of molecules as a defense mechanism or for signaling. As a result, the emission profile of volatile organic compounds of an impacted ecosystem can greatly change and will ultimately influence ozone levels and particle formation on both regional and global scales.

Can you share some advice for other young investigators?

I think curiosity and persistence are fundamental aspects of research. Being able to conduct research with passion while pursuing and trying to involve something different in the research would make the research experience more interesting. I would emphasize to the researchers that pursuing new ideas or concepts is always associated with the risk of failure, but from every experience, we learn something.

Tell us about yourself.

I am fascinated by science and like to stay in the lab. Outside of the lab, I like basketball, movies, travel, and playing with my little daughter.

What does this award mean to you?

It’s a great honor to be selected as a recipient of the James J. Morgan Early Career Award. The award recognizes me as part of the wonderful and creative scientific community. It is a big motivation for me to keep going on the path of science.

What are you working on now?

The central objective of my research is to find sustainable solutions for the environment. A key focus is to find nanotechnology-based solutions to enable sustainable agriculture. The global agriculture and food security sector is facing a wide range of challenges, such as low crop yields, declining soil health and fertility, shrinking arable land, and low use efficiency of agrochemicals, mainly due to excessive use of fertilizers and pesticides. Using nanotechnology, we may increase the crop yield whilst reducing the agriculture-derived environmental contaminations, and we will have more chances to win the battle against food security.

Another work I am doing now is nanosafety, a continuation of my past research. Ensuring the safety of nanotechnology is an important prerequisite for its application in other areas, including agriculture. Specifically, we are evaluating the behavior and toxicology using a variety of models such as cell lines, higher plants, and animals such as Daphnia mangaand earthworm.

What advances are you hoping to see in your field in the next decade?

The ultimate goal of our research is to ensure the sustainability of society. What my research can contribute is to help to achieve one of the UN 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs), i.e., zero hunger. More specifically, the goal is to end hunger, achieve food security and improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. In the next decade, I hope to see more advances in this field to ensure we achieve this goal as time won’t wait for us. I believe more nano-enabled sustainable solutions can be developed, but I hope more of these solutions can be tested in the real world and put into realistic applications.

Can you share some advice for other young investigators?

Keep positive and patient. Failure is common on the path of science. The best solution is to keep a positive mindset and be patiently waiting and finding solutions. Time management is also important, so make sure you find a good time system to balance work and family.

ChemRxiv preprints from Nobel Laureates 

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2021 was awarded jointly to Drs. Benjamin List and David W. C. MacMillan for their work in the development of asymmetric organocatalysis, a method that uses small organic molecules as catalysts instead of enzymes or metals. This innovation in molecular construction has led to catalysts that are less expensive and more environmentally friendly, while also opening up new pathways in pharmaceutical research.

Please check out some examples of the research from this year’s Nobel Laureates that has been posted on ChemRxiv:
