Welcome to our new Scientific Editor David Scanlon

We are delighted to welcome our new Materials Horizons Scientific Editor to the journal’s Editorial Board: David Scanlon of University College London, UK (ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0001-9174-8601)
“I am very much looking forward to supporting the computational materials science community and the wider materials science community as a Scientific Editor for Materials Horizons. Computational research is now a vital partner for experimental research as we search for the next generation of advanced materials, and I am excited to see the best and brightest new ideas being submitted to Materials Horizons.”
David Scanlon is Chair of Computational Materials Design at the Department of Chemistry, University College London, where he leads the Scanlon Materials Theory Group (SMTG). David gained his BA.(Mod) Computational Chemistry in 2006 and PhD in Chemistry in 2011 from Trinity College Dublin, where he carried out his research under the supervision of Professor Graeme W Watson. In 2011 he moved to the UK to University College London (UCL) to take up a Ramsay Fellowship in the Department of Chemistry, hosted by Professor Sir Richard Catlow, FRS. In September of 2013 he was appointed to a Lectureship in the Department of Chemistry at UCL, a joint appointment with Diamond Light Source, and was promoted to Reader in 2016 and Professor in 2018. He is an ERC Starting grant holder (2018-2023), and was awarded the the Harrison-Meldola Memorial Prize in 2015 and the Materials Chemistry Division Early Career Award in 2021 from the RSC. His group’s work is at the forefront of the global effort to explore new materials based on computations and to advance the capacity of first principles calculations to predict materials properties. The group is currently working on new materials for Li- ion batteries, understanding novel materials for photovoltaics and photocatalysis, and optimising materials for thin film displays. The group regularly publishes with experimental groups working in complementary areas of materials science from around the globe.
