About

Currently Managing Editor of The Plant Journal, I have a broad background and interest in academic and scholarly publishing and communication. In particular, I'm interested in the ever-changing landscape of academic journals publishing and the rise of new methods for communicating and disseminating scientific research. Also, the many issues surrounding research funding, peer review, research assessment, and so on.
