POTSDAM -- Clarkson University Chemistry & Biomolecular Science Professor Devon A. Shipp has been appointed an associate editor of the Australian Journal of Chemistry.
Shipp will handle submitted and invited research papers, and be the primary coordinator for journal activities in the United States. With a 65-year history, the Australian Journal of Chemistry, published by CSIRO Publishing, is the premier outlet for original chemical research in Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia.
Shipp's research interests lie in polymer chemistry, and include making novel biomaterials polymers for medical and dental use, producing new nanocomposites, and understanding and developing unique reaction mechanisms in radical polymerization.
His research has been published in 42 peer-reviewed publications and he has delivered more than 100 conference and invited presentations. He has been the recipient or co-recipient of over $2 million in research funding from industry, government and non-profit agencies.
Before joining the Clarkson faculty in 1999, Shipp he held the Bayer Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Carnegie Mellon University. He received a doctoral degree in chemistry in 1997 from the University of Melbourne in Australia.
