On Monday May 28 Phillip Szuromi, Senior Editor Research of Science, will give a presentation about publishing in Science.
Phil Szuromi received his bachelor's degree in chemistry from Harvey Mudd College in 1980 and my PhD in chemistry from Caltech in 1985. His research at Caltech with Henry Weinberg focused on catalytic reactions of hydrocarbon molecules on platinum and iridium single crystals in ultrahigh vaccum. He had a postdoctoral position with Ted Madey at NIST in Gaithersburg, MD, exploring Fischer-Tropsch reactions.
He came to Science in 1986, where he is now a Senior Editor. He currently handles the peer review and editing of original research papers in chemistry, physics, and materials science, but over the years he has also covered atmospheric science, biochemistry, and structural biology. He also works in the Insights section of the magazine, where he solicits and edits “Perspectives” pieces across a broad array of fields. Although many of the Perspectives highlight recent research in Science, he also solicits pieces that cover papers in other journals, as well as topics that are less represented in our research papers, especially engineering and applied sciences.
