Fernando Gomollon-Bel

Fernando Gomollon-Bel is the Graphene Flagship Press Coordinator. He deals with press releases, media relations, and some of the Graphene Flagship's website and social media content. Fernando was originally trained as a chemist, but long-term exposure to toxic solvents somehow turned him into a science communicator with experience in Public Relations, radio, magazines, and TV. He loves LEGO, Netflix, cooking, and going for an occasional run around Cambridge. But science is his true passion, even his two cats have sciency names – Gaia and Lynn.

Melanie Lawson is the Graphene Flagship Digital Media Coordinator. Mel manages the Graphene Flagship website, global social media strategy, graphic design of digital and print materials, and brand identity. She has a Physical Geography degree from her hometown, Sheffield, but switched geology for communications when she joined the project in 2018. Exiled from the UK for her controversial dislike of tea, Mel now lives on the Swedish west coast. She loves science fiction, puzzles, and outdoor swimming.
