Tracy Anderson

Tracy started her career in publishing with a weekly suburban publication in newspapers and magazines. Working with print and online clients, she has developed extensive experience in servicing clients on campaigns for recruitment advertising and custom publications. Her greatest strengths lie in her consultative approach and attention to developing client relations. Outside of work, Tracy loves giving back to her community and spending time with family and friends.

Xiaoying Chu

As the Director of Global Collaboration and Partner Publishing, Asia for Science/AAAS, Xiaoying oversees strategic partnership and business development in the region. She grew up and completed her undergraduate studies in Jinan, Shandong Province of China. Following graduation, she went on to work as a book editor for a Chinese publisher, after which time she went to the UK to receive her Masters in Publishing. Before Xiaoying joined Science/AAAS, she was the Vice General Manager of Charlesworth China, helping international society publishers and organizations set up/expand presence and raise awareness in China.


Laurie Faraday

With a well-rounded experience base of 30-plus years within the areas of public relations, advertising, and publishing sales, Laurie brings clarity and context into play to help her clients focus on best practices in the challenging communications world.  Past work with technology accounts lead to a chance meeting with the analytical sciences group of Hewlett-Packard (now Agilent). From that point forward, science became a mainstay in Laurie’s career path, something she maybe should’ve seen coming after declaring a sociology major at Indiana University.

Back in her agency days in San Francisco, Laurie’s mentor encouraged her to take full stock of her client’s business and treat it as her own, and she still keeps these words of wisdom in mind to this day.  Laurie cares, collaborates, and consults with her clients at every step of the way to help elevate their brand message.  When not immersed in crafting plans for clients, Laurie finds time to root for her favorite basketball team – the Indiana Hoosiers!

Roger Gonçalves

Roger joined Science in November 2008. He previously held positions at Informa and Nature Publishing Group where he helped launch the journal Nature Methods in New York. In addition to advertising sales and consulting, in 2016 Roger also took on responsibility for the Science prize programs and scientific meetings for the group.

With almost 20 years of experience in STM publishing, Roger has a profound passion for scientific publishing and developing novel advertising solutions for clients to connect with readers.

Roger is based in Switzerland and lives by the principles of the three F’s: family, fun and food.

Tracy Holmes

Tracy is based in Europe and started her career as a sales specialist in the pharmaceutical industry. She made the move to publishing and advertising sales when she joined Science/AAAS in 2000.   Having led the Recruitment Advertising team, first in Europe and then the US, she is experienced in helping organizations recruit, brand, and engage with the Science audience across multiple platforms.  She now heads up Global Advertising Sales and is proud to be part of an organization that is dedicated to advancing science for the benefit of all people.

Tracy is a country girl at heart and was once crowned Dairymaid of Norfolk, but has never milked a cow in her life!

Sarah LeLarge

Sarah comes from France and has acquired 20 years of experience in the UK in Publishing Advertising Sales for international newspapers, including the International Herald Tribune and multiple B2B and trade publications selling both display and classified advertising on European and International markets. It is her fifth year with Science advertising team, where her expertise lies in Careers and Recruitment advertising in Europe. Sarah has known a few adventures in her life, not the least working in the 90s as a volunteer on a Greenpeace Ship in Asia!

Jackie Oberst

Jackie did her undergraduate training at the University of Maryland, College Park, and received her Ph.D. in Tumor Biology at Georgetown University. Following this science training, she combined her interests of science and writing by receiving an M.A. in Journalism from the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland, College Park. Jackie joined Science/AAAS in 2016 following stints at Nature magazine, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, The Endocrine Society, and the National Institutes of Mental Health. In addition to having copyediting, publishing, managing editor, project management and public relations experience, she is also well-versed in social media and events planning and coordination.

Ask Jackie about anything from lab-grown meat to operatic frogs to obesity vaccines!

Claudia Paulsen-Young

Claudia has several years experience working in advertising and publishing in Europe and in the US.  Part of her professional remit over the years has included International business development, advertising, sponsorship, exhibit sales, territory expansion and key account management.

Sean Sanders

Sean hails from South Africa, where he grew up and completed his undergraduate studies in microbiology and biochemistry. He traveled to the UK to complete his Ph.D. and then to the U.S. for his postdoctoral training at the NIH and Georgetown University. He has been with Science/AAAS for over a decade, launching and running their custom publishing program. Outside of work, Sean has been known to combine his martial arts training and swing dance skills into a fun, but sometimes dangerous, form of partner dancing.

Lynne Stickrod

Lynne Stickrod is a 3rd generation native Californian (and proud of it!). She loves working with Science to help clients find the best way to build their brand and achieve increased sales and is committed to following the adage that the customer perspective always comes first.
