About the Editors

Peter Zarras

Peter Zarras received his BS in Chemistry from Adelphi University in 1984. Upon graduation from Adelphi he worked in an environmental laboratory (NyTest Labs) first as a technician and then as a manager of the metals department. Additional industrial experience was obtained as a QC/QA Manager for a start-up pharmaceutical firm (Hi-Tech Pharmaceutical) on Long Island. He completed his MS (Chemistry) in 1989 and Ph.D (Polymer Chemistry) in 1996 from Polytechnic University under the direction of Dr. Otto Vogl. After completing his Ph.D, he received an ASEE post-doctoral fellowship at the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division, China Lake, California under the direction of Dr. John D. Stenger-Smith. Where he has served as a research chemist since October 1996. His research interests include the synthesis of conductive polymers for corrosion prevention, smart coatings, batteries and supercapacitors, non-linear optical polymers (NLOPs), polyimides for advanced devices, and electro-active polymers for light emitting diodes. He has authored and/or co-authored over 100 publications, 10 patents and has organized several symposia at national and regional ACS Meetings. He is a member of the ACS POLY, PMSE and ORG Divisions, AAAS, and MRS.
