startquoteBuilding on the Press’s distinguished tradition of leading authors and groundbreaking books, I pursue manuscripts that are distinctive, provide insight to critical questions, uncover new connections, and, ultimately, offer a new understanding of our world. Whether for a trade or scholarly offering, I work closely with authors to develop and refine manuscripts towards long-lasting impact in the scientific and publishing community. I welcome proposals across the life and physical sciences, as well as the history and philosophy of science. My authors have included Françoise Baylis, Cecelia Heyes, Robert M. Kaplan, Roberto Kolter, Pardis Sabeti, and Rüdiger Wehner.endquote
