PhD Paul Kirkman
At Lubrizol, specialty chemicals expertise enhances practically every facet of life, from the way you move from place to place, to how you take care of yourself, to how you work. Half the vehicles on the planet rely on Lubrizol technology, and half the consumers in the world use at least one product containing Lubrizol technology. In his talk Research Chemist Paul Kirkman will introduce the role of QCM-D in supporting their mission to improve lives around the world.
Dr Ralf Richter
University of Leeds
Dr Ralf Richter is an Associate Professor at University of Leeds. He is aiming to understand the mechanisms of assembly and function of soft biological interfaces. Resolving how these systems work provides new approaches to prevention, diagnosis and treat disease, and inspiration for the design of new functional materials. He took his Master of Science in Physics at Chalmers University of Technology with the Master's Thesis Project on QSense. So when it comes to QCM-D technology, he knows his way.
Dr Fredrik Andersson
Want to know more about the role of QCM-D in research and development? We know who to listen to. Fredrik Andersson is a Scientist and Project leader for Global R&D at Nouryon, with a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Gothenburg and wide experience in QSense applications. In his lecture The Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation Method as an Effective Screening Tool in Surface Science Application Development he will explore the possibilities of QCM-D in R&D.
Professor Barbara Jachimska
Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences
Barbara Jachimska is a Professor at Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences in Krakow. Amongst her research topics you can find characteristics and stability of colloidal and bio-colloidal systems. Sounds interesting? We think so too.
Dr Sivashankar Krishnamoorthy
Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology
Dr Sivashankar Krishnamoorthy has 15 years of experience in development of advanced nanotechnologies. The interest of his research group centers around fabrication and investigation of nanometer scale structures, engineering properties based on rational design principles, and their exploitation within functional devices, materials and interfaces. Developing successful nanotechnologies for biomedical applications is currently in focus. Hear him tell the story.
Professor Seraphine Wegner
University of Münster
Seraphine Wegner is a Professor in the Institute of Physiological Chemistry and Pathobiochemistry at Univeristy of Münster. The research aim of her group is the spatiotemporal control of cell-material and cell-cell interactions and associated processes in natural and synthetic minimal cells by using visible light. Synthetic minimal cells, which reduce complexity and yet capture key features of natural cells, allow the Wegner group to quantify and correlate cell behavior with molecular information. Questions in cell biology can be addressed and new synthetic cell biology engineered. Listen to her talk on Light-controlled systems.

Dr Erik Berg
University of Uppsala
Could lithium-ion batteries store large quantities of solar energy and wind power in the future? Erik Berg believes so. But for this to become a reality, researchers must first address the challenge of limited battery life. Erik Berg, associate senior lecturer in the Department of Chemistry, is seeking new answers in an in-depth study of the ageing process in batteries. Wallenberg Academy Fellow Erik Berg will give you his insights.
