Congratulations to Jill Millstone on her new position as Associate Editor at ACS Nano. She has been an extremely active ACS Nano author and advisor, since even before she joined their editorial advisory board.

Jill E. Millstone received her B.S. in Chemistry and English from Carnegie Mellon University working with Richard D. McCullough, and completed her Ph. D. in Materials Chemistry at Northwestern University under the direction of Chad A. Mirkin. She studied charge transfer in organic-inorganic photovoltaics as post-doctoral researcher at the University of California, Berkeley in the laboratories of Jean M. J. Fréchet and A. Paul Alivisatos. In 2011, she joined the Chemistry Department at the University of Pittsburgh, where she has received awards including the National Science Foundation CAREER Award, the ACS Unilever Award and the Cottrell Research Scholar Award. She is also a member of the editorial advisory board of ACS Nano, beginning January 2016. Her group studies the chemical mechanisms underpinning metal nanoparticle synthesis, surface chemistry, and optoelectronic behaviors. She acted as a mentor and instructor at the Cottrell Scholar Collaborative supported workshop for new faculty as well as a mentor at the Global Young Academy Women in Science Leadership Initiative, the first workshop hosted by the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR) in the fall of 2016.
