Additional information

Adam C. Sedgwick is a Postdoctoral research fellow working under the supervision of Prof. Jonathan L. Sessler at The University of Texas in Austin, Texas. He obtained his PhD with Prof. Tony D. James and Prof. Steven D. Bull at the University of Bath focusing on the development of new synthetic transformations for application in fluorescence sensing. This includes the development of a single molecule that can simultaneously detect multiple biologically relevant analytes at one time (molecular logic gates). His current research interests are in the realms of stimuli-responsive materials, molecular imaging agents, and theranostics agents. To date he has published > 40 papers in international peer reviewed journals and has a h-index of 15 (December 2019, google scholar).

Tony D. James is a Professor at the University of Bath and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, who currently holds a prestigious Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award (2017–2022). He has developed a broad interdisciplinary approach to research, with an underpinning focus on the development of modular sensors where he has pioneered a range of reporting regimes.

He has been a visiting professor at Tsukuba, Osaka, Kyushu and Sophia Universities, an AMADEus invited professor at the University of Bordeaux and is a guest Professor at East China University of Science and Technology, Xiamen University, Shandong Normal University, Nanjing University, Shaanxi University of Science and Technology, Changzhou University, Zhejiang University, Qufu Normal University, Henan Normal University and is a Hai-Tian (Sea-Sky) Scholar at Dalian University of Technology.

He has published over 314 publications, including two books, 9 book chapters and 303 papers in international peer reviewed journals. He has an h-index of 67 (December 2019, google scholar). In addition, he received the Daiwa-Adrian Prize for developing scientific networks with Japan in 2013, the inaugural CASE Prize for establishing scientific networks with China in 2015, and the MSMLG Czarnik Award in 2018. Since 2019, he has been a member of the editorial board of Frontiers of Chemical Science and Engineering.
