Aquatic and Atmospheric Science

Do you have prior publishing experience?

I have been in publishing since I graduated from University in 2008, and so have expansive experience and knowledge of the publish industry.

What’s your history with Elsevier?

I have been in publishing since I graduated from University in 2008, since then I have had a range of roles (all at Elsevier) but for the past 3 years I have been part of the Earth and Environmental Science team, commissioning books in Geophysics and Geology to begin with, and now working on the Aquatic and Atmospheric Science list.

What do you enjoy about signing in this area?

I find the speed at which research in this area develops fascinating. As someone that has come into publishing without a scientific degree (I studied English Literature at University) it’s a real privilege to be a part of a field that fundamentally affects everyone all over the world, and it’s a real privilege to be involved in bringing some of that consequential research to light in book publishing

Why should this person sign a book with you?

I have a great deal of experience in the publishing world, both in terms of book development and commissioning and so can provide both new and experienced authors and editors with all the support and information they need to ensure that publishing their book is an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Why do you love publishing?

I love being able to work with an author to publish something that means a lot to them, and is really going to make a difference to other people.

Tell something personal about yourself:

I am a gym enthusiast and like to run a few times a week, I think it’s important to get outside and be active. I also have a labradoodle named Benji and I love spending time with him and exploring our beautiful local countryside.
