A physicist by training, I am the Managing Editor for the physical sciences at Nature Communications. Having studied physics at the University of Erlangen in Germany, I obtained my PhD from Imperial College London in 2000. I then held research positions at Bell Laboratories in New Jersey and the University of Marburg in Germany before I joined Nature Publishing Group in 2005 as an editor at Nature Materials, and took up my present position at Nature Communications in October 2012.
In my role as editor at a leading multidisciplinary scientific journal I see world-class science and have established close ties to many leading scientists across all the physical sciences. In the past have published in-depth news features in magazines such as Nature and New Scientist. In 2010, I spent two months as a visiting professor at The University of Tokyo, teaching science communication.
