Welcome to our new Editorial Board Chair, Martina Stenzel

Please join us in welcoming our new Editorial Board Chair to Materials HorizonsProfessor Martina Stenzel of the University of New South Wales, Australia (ORCID: http://orcid.org/0000-0002-6433-4419).
“I have been with Materials Horizons since the beginning of the journal, and I always liked how the journal tried to involve researchers at various stages of their career. For me it is important to be inclusive and have a journal that represents all researchers and is respectful of their opinion. As Editorial Board Chair I would like to see that Material Horizons reflects the changes in science and the society.”


Martina Stenzel studied chemistry at the University of Bayreuth, Germany, before completing her PhD in 1999 at the Institute of Applied Macromolecular Chemistry, University of Stuttgart, Germany. She then started working as a postdoctoral Fellow at the UNESCO Centre for Membrane Science and Technology at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, Australia, before being appointed as lecture in 2002 at the same University. In 2012 she was promoted to full Professor and is now UNSW Scientia Professor and ARC (Australian Research Council) Laureate Fellow. In 2018 she was elected as Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science. Her research interest is focused on the synthesis of functional polymers nanoparticles and their use as drug delivery carriers. Martina has been a Scientific Editor on the Materials Horizons Editorial Board since June 2014.

Read her recent articles:

J. Mater. Chem. B, 2021, Advance Article

Mater. Horiz., 2020, 7, 1727-1758

Polym. Chem., 2020,11, 7253-7263

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our previous Editorial Board Chair, Seth Marder, for eight years of service on Materials Horizons since its launch. He looks back on the first eight years of the journal:
“We set out some guiding principles for the creation of Materials Horizons and some distinguishing characteristics that we felt were important. Very specifically, Materials Horizons had the goal of providing the community with a multidisciplinary society-based journal that focuses broadly on the area of materials. I believe that we are, in our own small way, helping to invest in the future of our discipline and benefit from the valuable input. I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to contribute to these activities.”

I hope you will join us in welcoming Martina and thanking Seth for his past contribution.
