Senior Editor, Nature Human Behaviour

Mary Elizabeth is a senior editor at Nature Human Behaviour where she handles a broad range of content spanning neuroscience and the social sciences. Previously, she was an associate editor at Nature Communications. She has a PhD in behavioral neuroscience from McGill University, completed a fellowship at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences  and a postdoc at the Catholic University in Santiago Chile. She transitioned from a postdoc to a professor in the departments of medicine and psychology, but soon realized that she would be a better editor than professor, and so moved to New York where she is now based.
