About the Editors

Like the other Nature titles, Nature Climate Change 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: Bronwyn Wake

Bronwyn joined Nature Climate Change in 2012. She has handled research manuscripts and review and opinion articles across the entire breadth of physical climate sciences, the marine and aquatic environment, and interdisciplinary articles integrating natural and social science disciplines in the context of climate and global environmental change. In November 2014 she moved to the Sydney office before returning to the London office to become Chief Editor in May 2016. Bronwyn completed her postgraduate studies at University of Tasmania, Australia, with a PhD in trace element biogeochemistry and first class Honours in Antarctic Studies. Her postdoctoral work at the University of Southampton, UK and European Institute for Marine Studies, Brest, France focused on trace metal cycling in marine waters and their roles as micronutrients for phytoplankton. Bronwyn is based in the London office.


Senior Editor: Alastair Brown

Alastair joined Nature Climate Change in 2010. He handles research manuscripts and review and opinion pieces broadly on the impacts of climate change including ecology, biogeochemistry, agriculture, land use, biodiversity and conservation. Before joining Nature Climate Change, Alastair was based with the UK Climate Impacts Programme at the University of Oxford, UK where he worked on climate change vulnerability, impacts and adaptation research and practice. Alastair studied environmental science for his first degree, followed by a Masters in global environmental change, both at the University of Plymouth, UK. His doctoral and postdoctoral research at the University of Southampton, UK was in the field of palaeoclimatology. Alastair is based in the London office.

Jenn completed her PhD in psychology and postdoctoral work at Vanderbilt University, USA. Jenn is based in the New York office.


Associate Editor: Adam Yeeles

Adam joined Nature Research in 2016 as an editor for Nature Human Behaviour. He joined Nature Climate Change in October 2017, where he handles manuscripts concerned with the social, economic and policy bases of environmental and climate issues. Adam has a PhD in political science and an MS in geospatial sciences with a focus on applied remote sensing, both from the University of Texas at Dallas. He also holds an MA in comparative politics from American University. His doctoral and post-doctoral work has focused on spatial and time series analysis of socio-environmental risk. Before earning his doctorate, Adam worked in magazine publishing and international affairs. He is based in the New York office.
