Who we are

We welcome you to our news blog!

We – that is Ties and Sacha are all working at Springer (part of Springer Nature, a scientific publisher) and we are passionate about communicating science.


Ties Nijssen

As a publishing editor in Philosophy of Science I have the tremendous good fortune to work with academics from all research backgrounds. This has had the welcome side-effect of gradually transforming me from my straight alpha academic background in Marketing and Philosophy, into a layman marveling at the wonders of the natural and biological sciences. I take a special interest in the role of technology in science and how this is changing our notions of Truth, Society and Humanity (yes, I remain an alpha at heart).


Sacha Billett is specialist in communication and product management.


We want to give you a scientific view on the headlines you read and supply you with some original research to satisfy your thirst for knowledge.

Have fun reading!
