I joined Springer Science+Business Media in November of 2014 as a publishing editor in physics, where I help scientists
throughout the process of publishing high-quality research books, handbooks and journals, from project conception through publication.
Some of the my projects include the:
+ Springer Series on Atomic, Optical and Plasma Physics;
+ Springer Series in Optical Sciences;
+ Physics of the Earth and Planetary Environments; and
+ Journal of Low Temperature Physics.
Before joing Springer, I was a Science & Technology Attaché at the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Washington, D.C. for 5 years.
There I helped Dutch academia and industry partner with counterparts in the US and Canada based on intensive scouting and technology matchmaking.
I completed my Ph.D. at Harvard University in 2009. Through a combination of shock impact recovery experiments on magnetic rocks and minerals, geological fieldwork at a simple impact crater
in India, and analytical calculations of the effects of planet curvature on the shock wave propagation resulting from basin-forming impacts, I studied the effects of impact cratering on the magnetic properties of crustal materials
on Mars and the Earth.
My M.Sc. (2003) research was conducted at Utrecht University, The Netherlands, and focused on the relationship between felsic and mafic volcanics in the
Barberton Greenstone Belt, South Africa, based on field mapping and analyzing their (major and trace elemental) chemical compositions.
I enjoy baking and cooking, yoga and reading (Fiction and Sci-fi), and am located in NY.
