Journal of Materials Chemistry C and Materials Advances welcome Dr Rachel Crespo-Otero to our Editorial Boards

Journal of Materials Chemistry C and Materials Advances are delighted to welcome Dr Rachel Crespo-Otero from Queen Mary University of London, UK to the Editorial Boards as a new Associate Editor.


Dr Rachel Crespo Otero obtained a PhD in Chemistry through a collaborative programme between the University of Havana and the Autonomous University of Madrid. Following two postdoctoral positions at the Max Planck Institute for Coal Research and the University of Bath, she joined the Chemistry department at Queen Mary University of London as a Lecturer in January 2015 and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2019. Her research focuses on developing and applying computational techniques to understand excited states and nonadiabatic processes in organic materials with applications in photochemistry, solid-state lasers, OLEDs, and energy materials. She is particularly interested in combining modelling and experiments to aid the design of efficient materials.


‘I look forward to receiving your excellent papers and contributing to developing the journals’ content in areas such as photochemistry, organic materials and molecular modelling, amongst others.’
