It is a privilege to receive, after 2018 and 2021, the recognition as 2022 Highly Cited Researcher (HRC) by Clarivate. Only 6,938 out of abut 8M researchers have received this recognition. Citation numbers are not the most important parameter in science, but I am grateful to our team and collaborators that the community so well receives our works. I am also honored to be the only 2022 HRC of Saarland University and only 1 of 2 if counting the University Hospital, too.
I am honored to receive the 2022 Zhaowu Tian Prize for Energy Electrochemistry. This award by the International Society of Electrochemistry recognizes the achievements in the field of electrochemistry for energy of my team and I. I am fortunate to join the list of awardees which includes from past years Xiangfeng Duan (2017), Fabio la Mantia (2018), Zhichuan (Jason) Xu (2019), and Joaquín Rodríguez-López (2021). Coming in the year of my 40th birthday and the 10-year-anniversary of being a PI at the INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials, I am grateful to not just my team but also our esteemed collaborators, especially dear friends such as Michael Naguib, Guang Feng, Christian Prehal, Yury Gogotsi, Veronica Augustyn, and so many more!
Welcome to our new student intern, Anna Quinten! Anna is from Saarland University and will be working on ionic liquid supercapacitors.
Chandrasekaran Sakthi Vigneshwaran is a Master student working on next-generation Prussian blue based electrode materials for advanced batteries. Congratulations on being awarded a three month fellowship by the StudienStiftungSaar!
Dr. Samantha Husmann will attend the prestigious 2022 Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting this week. She is one of only 611 young scientists selected in a highly competitive process from across the globe. This year, the topic is chemistry, perfectly reflected by Samantha’s research on next generation electrochemical materials (including, but not limited to, Prussian blue and Prussian blue analogues). Her positive energy and visionary research perspective will enrich the LINO22!
