Meet the Editor-in-Chief
In July 2020 Prof. Anja-Verena Mudring (AVM) took over as Editor-in-Chief of Green Chemistry Letters and Reviews. She currently heads the Intelligent Materials Group at the Department of Chemistry and iNANO, the interdisciplinary nanoscience center, at Aarhus University, Denmark. AVM is also an Honorary Professor at the University of KwaZulu Natal, College of Agriculture, Engineering, and Science in Pietermartizburg, South Africa. Visiting professorships have taken her to Wrocław, Poland; Orléans, France; and Genova, Italy.
Prof. Mudring studied Chemistry at the Friedrich-Wilhelms Universität in Bonn, Germany. She carried out her doctoral thesis work at the Max-Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Germany. She worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Ames Laboratory before starting her independent scientific career at the Universität zu Köln in Cologne, Germany. She became Chair of Inorganic Chemistry at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum in Germany before moving back to the U.S. to join as Glen Murphy Professor at Iowa State University and to work with the Critical Materials Institute (U.S. DOE Ames Laboratory) to build a research program on green chemistry approaches to mitigate the critical materials crisis. She is the Founding Director of SUCeSS, the Stockholm University Center for Circular Systems, where she also headed the Physical Materials Chemistry Group in the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry. She has received numerous awards and fellowships, among them the Göran Gustafsson prize by the Royal Swedish Academy of Science conferred by the Swedish King Carl XVI Gustav. She has authored about 300 peer-reviewed publications.
