Professor Frank Marken will be addressing different types of electrified interfaces in a free public lecture at the University on Wednesday 21 March.
Professor Marken, from the University’s Department of Chemistry will be examining electrified interfaces; from large scale “solar electrification” of the earth to small scale phenomena in the laboratory, at this Faculty of Science Inaugural Lecture.
Professor Marken has established an international reputation for his innovative work in the area of electro-analytical chemistry. In May 2008 he was awarded the prestigious Theophilus Redwood Lectureship of the Royal Society of Chemistry for his work on enhancing the sensitivity of electro-analytical methods using microwave and ultrasound.
He has published more than 200 publications since 2000 and is an active member of the chemistry community. In addition to being a member of the American Chemical Society and Electrochemical Society, he has organised events such as the ‘Electrochem’ forum in 2011, bringing together leaders in the field to discuss their latest research and exciting projects.
Professor Marken joined the University in September 2004 as a Senior Lecturer and was promoted to Reader in 2008 and to Professor in 2011. Professor Marken’s research portfolio is wide ranging covering electrochemical kinetics, electro-synthesis, and energy conversion. His research interests are centred around the understanding of interfacial processes and the development of new electrochemical technologies.
The lecture is taking place in 3 West North 2.1 and starts at 6.15pm. Free parking is available in the West Car Park after 5pm.
Free tickets for the lecture are available from Sarah Robinson.
