Journal of Physics: Materials

Editorial board

The Editor-in-Chief leads the editorial strategy of the journal and works with the in-house editorial team and the Editorial Board to ensure the journal delivers the highest standards of peer review and coverage of the most significant advances in the field of materials research. The Editor-in-Chief provides final arbitration for any scientific disputes arising within the peer review process.

The Editor-in-Chief is supported by a Senior Advisory Panel who will work with the in-house editorial team to identify emerging hot topics and potential Guest Editors and Editorial Board Members.

The international Editorial Board includes prominent researchers and emerging leaders from all areas of materials research. They represent all geographic regions and support the rapid peer review of author manuscripts.


Stephan Roche is ICREA professor at the Catalan Institute of Nanosciences and Nanotechnology (ICN2) and the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology. He leads the Theoretical and Computational Nanoscience group which focuses on quantum transport in topological materials (graphene and topological insulators), 2D materials-based van der Waals heterostructures and strongly disordered materials (amorphous boron-nitride, etc). He pioneered the development of linear scaling computational approaches for wave packet dynamics, Kubo conductivities, and Landauer–Büttiker conductance in disordered materials and recently launched the LSQUANT initiative, which will act as a global dissemination platform for all order N quantum transport methodologies and engage into partnerships with academics and industries.

S. Roche was previously appointed as assistant Professor at University Joseph-Fourier and research staff Commissariat à l´Energy Atomique (France), and he has an extended history of research stays and collaboration in Japan, Germany, and Singapore. In 2009, he was awarded the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel prize from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Germany) in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field of Computational Nanosciences. Since 2011 he has been actively involved in the European Graphene Flagship project, and currently appointed as Division leader (“Enabling Science and Materials”) and as the leader of the Graphene Spintronic work package.
