Cannabis Science and Technology is pleased to announce the addition of Allegra Leghissa, PhD, to its editorial advisory board (EAB).

Dr. Allegra Leghissa graduated from the University of Bologna, Italy with an undergraduate degree in Chemistry in 2014 and a PhD in analytical chemistry from the University of Texas, Arlington in 2018. Under the supervision of Professor Kevin Schug, she worked on the analysis of terpenes and cannabinoids in cannabis and specifically delta-9-THC metabolites by gas chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (GC–MS/MS). She also had some experience with the analysis of these components by liquid chromatography (LC)–MS/MS.
