About Our Team


Meet the Editor
Luigi Longobardi, Executive Editor

Luigi is a physicist by training, an editor at heart, and can bake an amazing loaf of sourdough bread. Before joining AIP Publishing, Luigi spent six years at the American Physical Society where he was the Assistant Editorial Director and where he worked on Physical Review B and Physical Review X and launched Physical Review Fluids and Physical Review Materials. Luigi received a Ph.D. in physics from Stony Brook University and was subsequently a Marie Curie Researcher in Napoli and then a Research Associate at Dartmouth College.

Yujun Wang
Senior Editor

Yujun Wang, a table tennis enthusiast, knows just how important it is to respond to a serve with the appropriate speed and direction. This skill translates well to handling the influx of manuscript submissions to APR. Yujun received his Ph.D. from Kansas State University, and subsequently was a research associate at JILA, University of Colorado Boulder and NIST, followed by one year at JQI, University of Maryland and NIST. Yujun has also served as an Associate Editor for Physical Review A where he managed the peer review of manuscripts in areas of atomic, molecular, and optical physics.

Alina Bruma
Associate Editor

Speed is important to Alina! That’s because in addition to science, she is an avid speed skater! She brings that passion for velocity and focused attention to APR’s original research manuscripts.

Alina received her Ph.D. from the University of Birmingham in the UK. She has held research positions at CNRS-CRISMAT in Caen, France, at the University of Texas in San Antonio, and more recently at the University of Maryland and NIST prior to joining AIP Publishing.

Her background is in electron microscopy and nanoscale physics, and she brings this expertise as well as an overall joy of science and positive energy to the in-house editorial team handling peer review for APR.
