I joined the editorial board at AEM!

I am pleased to announce I have joined the Applied and Environmental Microbiology journal editorial team! It’s a three-year term, from Jan 2019 to Dec 2021. AEM, established in 1953, is the one of the journals published by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM), of which I have been a member for a number of years.

As I discussed previously, the effort of many individuals goes into a scientific manuscript, including ad-hoc reviewers and editorial staff at journals.  As an Editor, I interface between scientific reviewers and higher-level editorial staff to manage the peer-review process; including evaluating manuscript submissions for applicability to the journal, selecting reviewers, and assessing reviewer comments to making editorial decisions on publishing.
