Editor Name: Eugene Stephane Mananga
Designation: Adjunct Professor
University: New York University
HUMANITIES AND SCIENCES. He is a Faculty Member in the Physics Doctorate Program and in the Ph. D Program in Chemistry at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY). He is an Assistant Professor of Physics and Nuclear Medicine at BCC of CUNY, and an Adjunct Professor of Applied Physics at New York University (NYU). He completed his Ph. D in Physics from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and holds 6 additional graduate degrees and training from various institutions including Harvard University, Massachusetts General Hospital, and City College of New York. Eugene did his postdoctoral studies in the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory of USA, Harvard Medical School, and Massachusetts General Hospital. Prior to joining Harvard - MGH, Dr. Mananga was an “Ingenieur de Recherche” in the French Atomic Energy Commission and Alternative Energies (*Commissariat a l’Energie Atomique de France*, CEA-SACLAY, NEUROSPIN) where in collaboration with Dr. Thibault Charpentier, they introduced the Floquet-Magnus expansion in the field of Solid-State Nuclear Magnetic Resonance. This important contribution has contributed to advance the understanding of spin dynamics in nuclear magnetic resonance, quantum physics, and beyond. Eugene has published more than 60 peer-review scientific articles (mainly as first and corresponding author) including prestigious and major scientific journals such as Physics Reports, Royal Society of Chemistry, the Journal of Chemical Physics, PLOS One, the Journal of Physical Chemistry, Chemical Physics, Journal of Magnetic Resonance, Solid-State Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, etc... and has been serving as editorial board member for more than 30 international scientific journals. He is currently the Editor-in-Chief of the journal of Molecular Physics, and recently, he served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Imaging Science and also served the most prestigious position of "Chief Editor" for the editorial board of ”The Scientific Journal of Molecular Physics”. Dr. Mananga has been an honorable Scientific Adviser and Organizing Committee Member for several major international scientific conferences in the USA and around the world. On April 2018, he was selected as one of the 2018 STEM Faculty Leaders in the USA to participate in the 2018 PKALSTEM LEADERSHIPINSTITUTE II. His scientific contribution in the field of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance was honored during the 70th anniversary (1946 - 2016) of the Russian Academic of Sciences. Dr. Mananga is the Laureate of 2017 Henry Wasser Awardof Physics for outstanding achievement at the City University of New York. He was selected by the Academy of Humanities and Sciences for the prestigious 2017 Henry Wasser Award in Physics. His potential for leadership in SCIENCE is evidenced by his recent recognition as the recipient of the 2018 Distinguished Scientist Award from the American Chemical Society (New York, Westchester Section). In August of 2018, Dr. Mananga is awarded (Co-PI) a $4.97 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for S-STEM scholarship grant on “Developing a Growth Mindset Model to Build Resiliency in Underrepresented STEM Students”.
