About Mary Elizabeth

Mary Elizabeth is a senior editor at Nature where she handles papers whose topics span the behavioral sciences. Initially trained in cognitive neuropsychology at McGill, she continued integrating neuroscience and psychology in her postdoc at the Universidad Catolica in Santiago, Chile. She then spent a brief stint as a professor at that same institution before moving to an editorial position at Nature Communications. After two years, she joined the editorial team at Nature Human Behaviour; she moved to Nature a year ago to take over a new editorial position for the behavioural sciences on Nature’s biological sciences team. In this role, she publishes cutting edge research in psychology, cognitive science, sociology, computational social sciences, education, among others, and works with these various communities to uphold a high standard of scientific rigor.
