My primary charge is to locate and engage first-rate authors and editors to develop monographs, textbooks and supplementary texts, and professional references for researchers, advanced students (also undergraduates), and professionals in the areas of:

·         Theoretical Computer Science (all topics)

·         Information Security and Cryptography (computational and mathematical aspects)

·         Modelling & Simulation

·         History of Computing, Philosophy of Computing, general Computer Science topics

I bring to prospective authors and editors nearly 25 years of editorial experience in publishing science and technology, with more specific coverage at the nexus of computing, information science, and engineering. I attend numerous conferences annually in the above areas and can arrange appointments to answer queries. I have worked in Springer's Boston (U.S.) and U.K. offices and have strong familiarity with North American and European markets. Plus, I worked for some years developing our CS Books strategy and development in India.

If you have project proposals to discuss or questions about working with Springer to develop quality computing-related books, I would be very pleased to hear from you. (I have provided a proposal-guidelines link).
