MRS, the Materials Research Society, brings together researchers interested in materials, whether they have a background in chemistry, biology, materias science, physics, electrical engineering, biology, or something else.

The MRS Bulletin is the society's general-interest journal, and each monthly issue features several articles addressing a particular theme.

I have acted as science editor for several issues, meaning that I worked with other editors and the authors to edit every feature article and the associated images for content. I have also done quick-turnaround Meeting Scene reports on special talks at MRS meetings.
