Convenors: Dr Seyyed Shayan Meysami & Prof Nicole Grobert
Prof Magdalena Titirici, from the Department of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary University of London, will deliver a talk on Sustainable Carbon Materials and Chemicals from Biomass Hydrothermal Processes as part of the Begbroke Science Forum.
Magdalena Titirici obtained her PhD at the University of Dortmund, Germany. Between 2006-2012 she led the group Sustainable Carbon Materials at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Potsdam, Germany where she also did her Habilitation.
In 2013 Dr. Titirici became an Associate Professor in Materials Science at Queen Mary University of London. She was promoted to a full Professorship in 2014. Dr. Titirici is the author of around 100 publications in the field of sustainable materials and green nanochemistry, several book chapters and one edited book. Her research interests include porous materials, hydrothermal carbonisation, innovative utilization of biomass and waste, biofuels, CO2 sequestration, electrocatalysis in fuel cells as well as energy storage in secondary batteries and supercapacitors.
In this talk, recent results associated with sustainable carbon materials and chemicals from biomass hydrothermal processes will be discussed.
This talk will begin at 13.00 in the Oxford Room, Begbroke Science Park. There is a minibus leaving Parks Road at 12.31 which will arrive at Begbroke at 12.50 and is ideal for this talk. View the timetable here.
Refreshments will be provided, you are welcome to bring your own lunch. We look forward to welcoming you to this talk.
The next Begbroke Science Forum will take place on 27 February 2015. More information coming soon!
