“Welcoming proposals in the physical sciences, mathematics, and technology, I seek ambitious, interdisciplinary projects for scholars and the inquisitive reader. A trained statistician and published author of research in neuroscience journals, I believe that boldly argued books are crucial to ensuring that new ideas continue to drive scientific debate, inspiring innovation and collaboration. I am passionate about publishing books at the intersection of science and society, books that offer a fresh lens through which we can understand and ultimately solve the world’s most urgent problems. I pursue manuscripts that challenge our preconceptions, trace the evolution of ideas, and tell a story about the world we inhabit and the science that shaped it.

Drawing upon my background working in academic publishing and at a Big Five trade publisher, I work closely with authors to sharpen their arguments and polish their prose, all with the goal of reaching the widest possible audience.”
