Inside Nature journals: An editor’s view **Amos Martinez** received his degree in physics from the University of Bath, followed by a MSc in optoelectronics and lasers from St. Andrews University and a PhD in photonics from Aston University (UK). After his PhD, he divided his time between academia and industry. In the University of Tokyo, he studied the mode-locking of fibre lasers using carbon nanotubes and 2D materials. Back in the UK, after a period as an editor in _Nature Communications_ , he joined Toshiba Research Europe Labs (Cambridge, UK) where he focused on the commercialization of quantum key distribution technologies. Prior to joining _Nature Materials_ in June 2021, he was at the University of Cambridge working towards the commercialization of fibre lasers for coherent Raman microscopy. At _Nature Materials_ , Amos handles manuscripts in the areas of photonics, plasmonics and metamaterials. Amos is based in the London office. **Rachel Won** joined Nature Photonics in June 2006 from Aston University's Business Partnership Unit in Birmingham, UK where she worked as a Medici Fellow commercializing photonics research. She obtained her PhD in optical fibre sensing, microwave photonics and fibre nonlinearities as a member of Aston's Photonics Research Group. Prior to that, Rachel worked for Philips Optical Storage in Singapore as an Optics Engineer. She holds a Master's degree from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and a Bachelor's degree from the National University of Malaysia. Rachel is based in London. Host: Javier Aizpurua
