Dr. Clifford Chuwah 

Earth and Environmental Science Managing Editor

“Some of the greatest global environmental challenges of the 21st century such as climate change, air pollution, water resources, deforestation and hazard management are better understood and solved by integrating knowledge from different disciplines and putting it in context of decision-relevant information. We welcome submissions on all facets of modern applied Earth and Environmental Sciences"
Clifford Chuwah is a Geoscientist who has a broad academic background that cuts across different sub-disciplines within Earth and Environmental Sciences. He is based at the Springer Nature office in Dordrecht, the Netherlands and he handles research manuscripts, review articles, case studies, research letters as well as short communications broadly from Earth and Environmental sciences. He holds a PhD from Wageningen University.

Dr. Amin Fatemi  

Engineering Managing Editor

"Applied Sciences is a rich field, and Applied Engineering especially is seeing many exciting new developments. Think of how fast bioengineering, robotics and control, signals and communication, and many other engineering fields are evolving and producing new ideas, products, techniques, methods and models. We would like to help disseminate this knowledge by publishing your papers"
Amin Fatemi is a geoscience engineer by education (petroleum reservoir engineering). He has a PhD from TU Delft and is based at the Springer Nature office in Dordrecht, the Netherlands. As the managing editor of the Engineering section of the journal, he handles submissions in several sub-fields such as numerical modeling, design, robotics and control to name a few.

Dr. Nastaran Ranjbar 

Chemistry & Materials Managing Editor

"Focusing on purposeful applied science originating from pure science is our target. The applied chemistry and material science papers encompass a broad spectrum of scientific discoveries and research which create numerous usable results and products. Our mission is to help sound applied scientists introduce their work to the globe"
Nastaran Ranjbar Sahraie was awarded the title of Doctor of Science from TU Berlin and the International Graduate School BIG NSE within DFG Cluster of Excellence Unicat. During her PhD, she worked on materials for energy conversion and catalysis. As Managing Editor for the Materials/Chemistry section of the journal she will handle papers a variety of topics across the field of chemistry and material sciences. Before joining Springer Nature, she worked as a postdoctoral scientist at CNRS, on different subjects including novel electrocatalysts.

“Today, research often focuses on multidisciplinary projects that cover the expertise of reference experiments, numerical modelling, and theory to provide a better understanding of key processes. In applied sciences, focused cooperation of academia, industry and government has led and still leads to new developments which results in various new products in engineering technologies. For example, think of the rapid advances in renewable energies. With this journal, we provide a platform to spread the results of sound sciences and interdisciplinary research in the growing disciplines of applied sciences.”
Thomas von Larcher is a Geoscientist by education with broad experience in various disciplines, e.g., engineering, fluid mechanics, atmospheric sciences, and applied mathematics. He received his PhD in Engineering Technology from Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus, Germany. He is especially interested in experiments, numerical modelling, and computational mechanics. He is based at the Springer Nature office in Dordrecht, The Netherlands. As managing editor in the Engineering section of the journal he handles research articles as well as research letters and short communications of various sub-disciplines of engineering technologies and mechanics.
