I am both humbled and honored to join the senior editorial board of the Dynamical Systems Magazine alongside Elizabeth Cherry and Peter van Heijster as I step into the shoes of managing editor Krešimir Josić. As a graduate student at Boston University, I made prodigious use of DSweb and continued to avidly read the magazine as a postdoctoral fellow at UCLA. As a new assistant professor at the University of San Francisco, DSweb continues to be invaluable for me in keeping up with current events and issues in the field.
I am looking forward to being a part of the team guiding the transitions of both the magazine and the DSweb portal from their original platform to the new web interface over the next few years. In the near future, I will be reaching out to both regular contributors as well as new faces to make their debuts in the magazine. In particular, I'm especially interested in soliciting pieces on research, education and career issues in dynamical systems. If you have an idea for a contribution on any of these topics or others, please don't hesitate to contact me; my inbox is always open. My goal is to keep the magazine contemporary and a key resource for the greater dynamical systems community. I look forward to this new chapter in taking on a leadership role in the magazine, and my sincere thanks go out to Kreso for his dedicated and exemplary service to the magazine in helping to bring it to its current state of excellence.
