Lewis Collins

Inspired by David Attenborough documentaries as a child (and an adult), Lewis has been amazed by the natural world from an early age. While undergraduate and master’s degrees in Earth science (Cardiff University) and climate change (University of East Anglia) nurtured this interest, it was his doctoral (British Antarctic Survey) and post-doctoral (Université Pierre et Marie Curie) research on Antarctica that centred his focus on environmental change. Following over 5 years with the Nature Publishing Group, where he led the Nature Communications’ Earth editorial team, Lewis joined Cell Press in 2018 to launch One Earth, a journal focused on advancing our ability to better understand and address the world’s most pressing environmental grand challenges.
