Materials Horizons introduces two new Editorial Board members

Welcome Simone Fabiano and Kelsey Hatzell to the Materials Horizons Editorial Board

Materials Horizons is pleased to announce the addition of two new board members, Simone Fabiano and Kelsey Hatzell. We would like to welcome you both to the fantastic team who support the publication of high-quality and innovative research from across the globe. We have provided a short bio below to introduce Simone and Kelsey to our community.

‘I look forward to engaging with the broader materials science community and learning new research directions in materials science that push the boundaries of our understanding and inspire breakthroughs.’


Simone Fabiano is an associate professor and docent in Applied Physics at Linköping University, Sweden. He obtained his PhD in Chemistry from the University of Palermo in 2012. During his doctoral studies, he was a visiting scholar at the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials of the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. He then held postdoctoral positions at both Linköping University (2012-2015) and Northwestern University (2016-2017) before returning to Linköping University to establish his research group. In 2020, he founded n-Ink AB, a spinout company that focuses on developing n-type organic conductive inks, where he serves as the Chief Scientific Officer. His group at Linköping University primarily focuses on developing organic dopant-free conductors and mixed ionic-electronic conductors for printed electronics and neuromorphic hardware applications. He has received several awards, including the Swedish Research Council Starting Grant in 2017 and Consolidator Grant in 2023. He is also a Wallenberg Academy Fellow.

In addition, I’m very excited to learn more about Materials Horizons and its readership. It is really a privilege to play a role in the future directions of Materials Horizons.’


Dr. Hatzell is an assistant professor at Princeton University in the Andlinger Center for Energy and Environment and Department of Mechanical and Aerospace engineering. Hatzell’s group primarily work on energy storage and is particularly interested at using non-equilibrium x-ray techniques to probe materials for energy and separation applications. Hatzell earned her Ph.D. in Material Science and Engineering at Drexel University, her M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Pennsylvania State University, and her B.S./B.A. in Engineering/Economics from Swarthmore College. Hatzell’s research group works on understanding phenomena at solid|liquid, solid|gas,  and solid|solid interfaces broadly work in energy storage and conversion. Hatzell is the recipient of several awards including the ORAU Powe Junior Faculty Award (2017), NSF CAREER Award (2019), ECS Toyota Young Investigator Award (2019), finalist for the BASF/Volkswagen Science in Electrochemistry Award (2019), the Nelson “Buck” Robinson award from MRS (2019), Sloan Fellowship in Chemistry (2020), and POLiS Award of Excellence for Female Researchers (2021), NASA Early Career Award (2022) and ONR Young investigator award (2023).
