20170531Publishing in Nature: How to make an impact
Biosketch： I am a senior editor for Nature. I have worked as a manuscript editor at Nature for 15 years. I am in the physical sciences editorial team, overseeing peer review and making decisions on the editorial suitability of submissions in various areas of materials science and engineering. I handle materials synthesis, characterization, biomaterials, some aspects of soft matter, structural materials and mechanical properties amongst others. I also am interested in gender equality issues in science. Prior to joining Nature, I received a degree and PhD in materials science and engineering from Sheffield University and a postdoctoral fellowship from the University of Washington in Seattle, USA.
