Dr Irene Suarez-Martinez has been dedicated most of her career to the atomistic modelling of carbon materials. In collaboration with experimental chemists, physicists and engineers, she has investigated graphite, diamond, amorphous carbons and a range of carbon nanomaterials. She has won multiple prizes for her scientific outreach projects and particularly enjoys creating scientific artistic images.

Dr Irene Suarez-Martinez is a Senior Research Fellow at the Physics Department in Curtin University (Perth, Australia).
