About the Editors

Like the other Nature titles, Nature Electronics has no external editorial board. Instead, all editorial decisions are made by a dedicated team of professional editors, with relevant research and editorial backgrounds.

Chief Editor: Owain Vaughan

Owain joined Nature Research in 2008 as an editor for Nature Nanotechnology, going on to handle an array of topics in nanoscience and nanotechnology. In 2016 he began work as a strategy editor for Nature Research. Here he developed the editorial and publishing strategy of the Nature journals in the applied physical sciences and engineering, exploring, in particular, the fields of electronics, robotics and artificial intelligence. He became Chief Editor of Nature Electronics in 2017. He has a PhD in surface chemistry from the University of Cambridge, and was previously a Junior Research Fellow at King’s College, Cambridge. Owain is based in London.


Senior Editor: Stuart Thomas

Stuart joined Nature Research in 2017 as an editor for Nature Communications, handling manuscripts on semiconductor physics and devices, electronics and robotics. He joined Nature Electronics in 2018 and handles work covering all aspects of electronics. Stuart has a PhD in experimental solid-state physics from Imperial College London, and a BEng in Computer Systems and Electronics Engineering. He conducted postdoctoral research in the UK and Taiwan, working on field-effect devices, photovoltaics and digital circuit design, and has over ten years of experience working in industrial automation and control. Stuart is based in London.


Associate Editor: Matthew Parker

Matthew joined Nature Electronics in 2019. He has a MSc in Physics from Imperial College London and a PhD from the University of Bristol, where his research focused on using Tamm states — optical states that occur at the interfaces of photonic crystals — to design devices for quantum information applications. Matthew is based in London.


Associate Editor: Katharina Zeissler

Katharina joined Nature Electronics in 2021. She has a PhD from Imperial College London, where she investigated the electrical and magnetic properties of artificial spin ice — periodic arrays of frustrated nanomagnets. She subsequently conducted postdoctoral research on spintronics at the University of Leeds and the National Physical Laboratory, exploring how magnetic skyrmions interact with electrical currents. She has also led work on the development of roadmaps for materials and devices at the Bragg Centre for Materials Research at the University of Leeds, and the Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials Research and Innovation. Katharina is based in London.
