About the Editors

Chief Editor: Heike Langenberg

Heike has been a Senior Editor at Nature handling manuscripts in the broad area of the climate sciences since 1999, and now heads the editorial team of Nature Geoscience. A graduate in mathematics of the Philipps-Universität Marburg, Germany, she ventured into oceanography for her PhD at the University of Hamburg. Her postdoctoral research at various research institutes in Hamburg was focused on numerical simulations of the ocean and atmosphere at a regional scale.

Senior Editor: Amy Whitchurch

Amy joined Nature Geoscience in December 2009 after working as a postdoctoral researcher at Imperial College London, examining mountain evolution using the techniques of thermochronology and sedimentology. Amy obtained her PhD in Geology from Imperial College, focussing on the sedimentary record of hotspot evolution, and her MRes in Earth and Atmospheric Physics from Leeds University, where she concentrated on volcano-seismology. While studying for her BSc in Environmental Science at Lancaster University, she spent an exchange year at the University of Minnesota, USA.

Senior Editor: Alicia Newton

Throughout her studies Alicia has focused on various aspects of micropalaeontology and palaeoceanography. A graduate of the University of South Carolina, her areas of research include Palaeozoic palaeontology and micropalaeontology, Quaternary climate and oceanographic change, and the development of palaeoceanographic proxies. She has also been active in secondary and undergraduate geoscience education practice and pedagogy. Alicia joined Nature Geoscience in July 2007.

Senior Editor: Tamara Goldin

A fan of geologic catastrophes on the Earth and beyond, Tamara joined Nature Geoscience in January 2012 following postdoctoral research at the University of Vienna. She received her PhD in Geosciences from the University of Arizona, where she studied planetary surface processes at the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory. Her research focused on large meteorite impacts and their environmental effects. She received her BS in Geology from Tulane University in New Orleans and conducted a year of doctoral research at the Bayerisches Geoinstitut in Germany.

Associate Editor: Jonathan Hickman

Jonathan joined Nature Geoscience in August 2014 after five years as a postdoctoral fellow and an Associate Research Scientist at the Earth Institute at Columbia University in New York. While at Columbia, Jonathan conducted experimental work on nitrogen dynamics in subsistence farming systems in east Africa and used modelling approaches to evaluate how agricultural development activities in the region affect food security and poverty under current and future climates. Jonathan completed his Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolution at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, where he studied how alterations to soil nitrogen cycling by an invasive vine affected trace gas emissions and air quality in the south eastern United States.
