I'm a Singapore-based books acquisitions editor for CRC Press, commissioning within the Life Sciences and Chemistry, with a special interest in the Biomedical sciences and Biotechnology.

I previously worked more broadly across the applied sciences and engineering but have moved to my new life sciences portfolio since the beginning of 2012.

As of November 2014, I have left the company, so if you are thinking of writing a textbook at the senior undergraduate or graduate level (examples, case studies, homework problems and other supplementary materials are strongly encouraged), please contact Dr Fiona Macdonald at fiona.macdonald@taylorandfrancis.com . Quality reference material for monographs, edited books and handbooks are also priorities. Please contact Fiona for all editorial concerns.

Books in my list are distributed and sold throughout Asia, the USA and Europe.

About Me

I have been working in academic publishing since 2005, with 2008 marking my first year as a CRC Press editor.

Originally, I trained as a developmental biologist, obtaining my PhD from University College London in 1996 and working in the laboratory. In 2000 I decided on a career switch and went back to school (Imperial College London) to do a Science Communications course before returning to my home country (Singapore) to try my hand at various Communications and PR-type roles.

It was during my time in the UK that I decided to act on my longtime interest in classical music (particularly vocal) by participating in amateur church and opera choruses. I currently sing mezzo in the Celebration Chorus. (Current season here).

At work with CRC, I continue to build on and broaden my understanding of academic life, it’s goals and constraints. I bring this understanding to my current job, with the hope that it adds to my authors’ publishing experience.

The thing I enjoy most about working with CRC Press is that the job allows me to keep-up with cutting-edge research while meeting new people and new cultures (capturing everything with my trusty dSLR and very often sampling their food). Most of all, it is the excitement of holding a freshly-printed book in my hand and knowing how it could change people’s thinking – in the classroom, the laboratory or the world...

I hope that, next time, the book I’m getting excited about is yours!
