A graduate of the University of Birmingham in the UK, Stuart obtained his PhD in chemistry from UCLA in 2001 (working with Sir Fraser Stoddart), followed by postdoctoral research at Caltech (working with Bob Grubbs in his pre-Nobel days). In 2003, he returned to UCLA to tackle a number of different roles, including his first job in journal publishing — running an editorial office for Organic Letters. In 2006, Stuart joined Nature Publishing Group as an associate editor at Nature Nanotechnology. In early 2008, he was appointed to be the founding Chief Editor of Nature Chemistry, which launched in April 2009.
