About the Editors

Like the other Nature titles, Nature Machine Intelligence has no external editorial board. Instead, all editorial decisions are made by a dedicated team of professional editors, with relevant research and editorial backgrounds.

Chief Editor: Liesbeth Venema

Liesbeth joined Nature in 2000 as a manuscript editor. She has handled research and review articles across a range of topics in fundamental and applied physics and in recent years in robotics and artificial intelligence. She became Chief Editor of Nature Machine Intelligence in 2017 and has a PhD in applied physics from Delft University of Technology. l.venema@nature.com

Senior Editor: Trenton Jerde

Trenton Jerde received his PhD in neuroscience from the University of Minnesota, where he studied the neural control of hand movements with Apostolos Georgopoulos. As a postdoctoral fellow, he conducted research on the neuroscience of eye movements and spatial cognition with Clayton Curtis at New York University. He has worked as a data scientist and consultant on brain disorders, most recently for Medtronic on Parkinson’s disease; and held faculty positions at Columbia University in the Applied Analytics Program and at New York University in the Department of Psychology. His research interests include the brain control of movement, brain-machine interface, artificial intelligence, and cognitive science. trenton.jerde@us.nature.com

Senior Editor: Yann Sweeney

Yann's training started in theoretical physics after which he completed a PhD in computational neuroscience with Matthias Hennig at University of Edinburgh and Jeanette Hellgren-Kotaleski at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, modelling homeostatic mechanisms in spiking neural networks. He spent his postdoctoral years with Claudia Clopath at Imperial College London, where he used recordings of neural activity to constrain perceptual learning rules in recurrent networks. Yann is interested in how artificial intelligence will shape science and society. yann.sweeney@nature.com

Senior Editor: Jacob Huth

Jacob studied Cognitive Science at the University of Osnabrück with a focus on theoretical neuroscience and a broad background of computational linguistics, artificial intelligence and philosophy of mind. He worked on modelling aging mechanisms for his PhD at the Institute de la Vision in Paris. He is interested in the use of machine learning techniques and robotics that affect research and everyday life. jacob.huth@nature.com
