Nature Sustainability is a new Nature Research journal that launched in January 2018, publishing original research from a broad range of natural, social and engineering fields about sustainability, its policy dimensions and possible solutions. Understanding how to ensure the well-being of current and future generations within the limits of the natural world is the overarching goal of sustainability research.

Monica joined Nature Research 2011 as a Senior Editor at Nature Climate Change. In 2015, she moved to Nature, where she served as Senior Strategy Editor, before becoming Chief Editor of Nature Sustainability in 2016. Monica completed her doctoral studies in environmental and development economics at the University of Naples Federico II, Italy. She then held a visiting professor position at University Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico, and subsequently joined the sustainable consumption team at WWF-UK where she gained invaluable experience about the challenges of bridging the gap between research and policy domains.
