Welcome to the Device and Materials Engineering Community

A new initiative from Nature Research

Apr 18, 2018

This new community is aimed at all those who work on device engineering and materials engineering. We welcome contributions from the academic community, including graduate students, postdocs, or PIs — but we also hope to draw from engineers and scientists in industry.

The community is supported by our relevant journals, including our new launch Nature Electronics, but also Nature, Nature Materials, Nature Physics, Nature Photonics, Nature Nano and Nature Communications, as well as our new journal, Communications Physics, which launched in February.

This initiative builds on our successful communities in microbiology, ecology and evolution, and biomedical engineering, as well as new communities in sustainability, chemistry and astronomy. 

Feel free to join the discussion by writing posts or commenting on content - and enjoy the community!

Head of Communities & Engagement, Springer Nature

I am Head of Communities & Engagement at Springer Nature with a role to provide training, guidance and support on our online communities. I worked at BioMed Central for 5 years, where I launched and developed new open access journals, including Microbiome, Zoological Letters and Cancer & Metabolism. Before that, I spent 8 years in research with a PhD in influenza virus innate immunity from the University of Reading and Health Protection Agency and then as a postdoc at Imperial College London researching smallpox vaccines, viral ion channels and apoptosis. Please get in touch with any training needs, technical questions or general comments!
