Originally trained as a physical chemist, Christopher Barner-Kowollikis probably mostly known for his work on RAFT polymerization, including the famous Handbook of RAFT Polymerization. He joined the international advisory board of Macromolecular Rapid Communications in 2006 and the board of Macromolecular Theory and Simulations in 2007. In 2011, he joined the executive advisory board for the complete Macromolecular Journal family.
