Dr Ferdinando Patat of the European Southern Observatory joins
Science, People & Politics as editorial advisor

16th September, 2016: Dr Ferdinando Patat, who today becomes an editorial adviser to Science, People & Politics, holds a Masters and a PhD in Astronomy from the University of Padua, Italy. He leads the Observing Programmes Office of the European Southern Observatory (ESO), an intergovernmental organisation based in Germany. Dr Patat's main research interest is Supernova explosions. He is author and co-author of over a hundred refereed publications in international journals.

"I am delighted that Dr Patat has agreed to join the editorial advisory board of Science, People & Politics, ISSN 1751-598x online," says Helen Gavaghan, the title's publisher and editor. "We are a pioneering publication breaking many moulds, bringing contemporaneous, magazine and journal publishing together in the digital age, and collated on a quarterly basis into a scientifically literate humanities title. We wish our authors to have confidence in the quality of the scientific knowledge behind the title.

"I also thank Dr Cynan Ellis-Evans, who is standing down after 10 years as an editorial advisor. His insight as a biogeochemist and science administrator on the global stage has been invaluable to the credibility of the title in its early days. Together with deputy editor, Martin Redfern, I wish Dr Ellis-Evans good luck with his future endeavours."
