About the Editors

Chief Editor: Oliver Graydon - based in London

Oliver joined Nature Photonics with 10 years' experience in the world of scientific publishing. He was previously employed at the Institute of Physics Publishing Ltd. where he held several posts, including editor of the monthly magazine Opto & Laser Europe and its associated website Optics.org. Oliver has a first-class degree in physics from Imperial College London and a PhD in optical communications from the University of Southampton's Optoelectronics Research Centre.

International Editor: Rachel Pei Chin Won - based in London

Rachel joined Nature Photonics in June 2006 from Aston University's Business Partnership Unit in Birmingham, UK where she worked as a Medici Fellow commercializing photonics research. She obtained her PhD in optical fibre sensing, microwave photonics and fibre nonlinearities as a member of Aston's Photonics Research Group. Prior to that, Rachel worked for Philips Optical Storage in Singapore as an Optics Engineer. She holds a Master's degree from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and a Bachelor's degree from the National University of Malaysia.

Senior Editor: David Pile - based in San Francisco

David joined Nature Photonics in November 2008. He has 10 years of theoretical and experimental research experience and has published highly cited papers in fields including near-field- and subwavelength-optics, gratings and photonic crystals, slow and fast light, metamaterials, linear and nonlinear optics, free-space and guided waves, sensors and imaging techniques. David obtained a first-class honours degree in physics in 1998 and a PhD in 2003 (on periodic structures) from Queensland University of Technology, Australia. Following a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Tokushima (2004 - 2005), David was an associate researcher at the University of California Berkeley (2006-2008).

Associate Editor: Noriaki Horiuchi - based in Tokyo

Noriaki joined Nature Photonics in September 2009. He started his research at Waseda University, Tokyo. In 1992, he went to study in France after receiving a scholarship from the French Government. Collaborating with Laboratoire de Minéralogie et Cristallographie of Université Paris 6 and France Télécom, Noriaki obtained his PhD in 1999 from Université Joseph Fourier, Grenoble. Following a postdoctoral researcher's position at Toyota Technological Institute, he worked as a researcher at RIKEN from 2002 to 2009. His research interests are in the fields of nonlinear optics, crystal growth and photonic crystals.
