Sonnini Yura                          

Acquisitions Editor                    São Paulo, Brazil

My Elsevier journey started in 2014 as an Acquisitions Editor, but I have been working in publishing for 23 years. I have both project management and commissioning experience. I’ve been building up the biomedical engineering portfolio for 5 years now, particularly focusing on the areas of Medical & Surgical Robotics, Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology.

I chose this career because I love to read; even when I was a kid, books were my best friend. I am passionate about traveling; my favorite places visited are Stockholm and Hamburg (so far!). I’m a mom of a lovely three-year-old boy: Gabriel, but before him, I was a mom of three four-legged kids, my beautiful cats: Minnie, Fandangos and Luvinha.

Engineering brings science and technology out of the lab and into the real world. Often without thinking about it, we engage every day with technology that is the product of careful, precise design and execution by engineers in electronics, optics, and communications; embedded systems; automotive, aerospace, and marine; mechanical; and many other disciplines. For decades, Elsevier has maintained and grown extensive collections in these and other cutting-edge areas, like biomechanics and nanotechnology, through our trusted imprints: Newnes, Academic Press, and Woodhead Publishing. In addition, our powerful online platforms like Knovel and Engineering Village help streamline research and development processes for users around the world.
