Hendrik Heinz, Associate Editor
University of Colorado Boulder, USA
Hendrik Heinz is an Associate Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder. His research focuses on the simulation of biological and nanostructured materials. He develops the Interface force field and a surface model database as a uniform platform for atomistic simulations of compounds across the periodic table in high precision with applications to alloys, biomaterials, catalysis, aqueous corrosion, mineralization, hydrogels, and polymer materials.
He holds M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from ETH Zurich in chemistry and materials science, carried out postdoctoral work at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in Dayton, Ohio, and served on the faculty of the University of Akron from 2006 to 2015. Prior to joining the New Journal of Chemistry, he served as an Associate Editor of RSC Advances. Hendrik is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK), won the Special Creativity and Career Awards from the U. S. National Science Foundation, the Sandmeyer Award from the Swiss Chemical Society, the Max Hey Medal from the Mineralogical Society, the Giovanni Novelli Prize from the Italian Clay Minerals Society, a Hewlett-Packard Outstanding Junior Faculty Award from the American Chemical Society, and held guest professorships at ETH Zurich and NIMS (Japan).
