Pre-Conference School Speakers

Prof Michael Anderson

Professor Of Materials Chemistry
The University Of Manchester, United Kingdom

Following his undergraduate studies in Chemical Physics at Edinburgh University he conducted his PhD work in the group of John M. Thomas in Cambridge. Following various post-doctoral appointments in the USA he was appointed to the faculty at the University of Manchester (formerly UMIST) in 1990 where he is now Professor of Materials Chemistry and Director of the Centre for Nanoporous Materials.  He is currently an Adjunct Professor at Curtin University.  His research interests include: experimental and theoretical NMR studies of heterogeneous microporous catalysts; structural studies of mesoporous materials; atomic force microscopy and electron microscopy studies of crystallisation mechanisms; synthesis and applications of novel nanoporous materials.

Prof Antonio S. Araujo

Head of the Laboratory of Catalysis and Petrochemistry (LCP)
Institute of Chemistry, Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil

Antonio S. Araujo received his PhD degree in Science in 1992 at the University of Sao Paulo (Brazil). Then, he moved for the Institute of Chemistry at Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte. In 1998, He was postdoctoral fellow at Kent State University, Ohio (USA). As a postdoctoral researcher he was involved with synthesis, characterization and acid properties of zeolites and silica based mesoporous materials. His interest research is pyrolysis, kinetics and thermal analysis of catalytic degradation of heavy oil, petroleum residue and plastic wastes, using zeolites and hybrid micro-mesoporous materials as catalysts, with a focus on obtaining fuels and the environment. Prof Araujo is full professor and researcher of the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (Brazil) and was cited in the “Who is Who in Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry” book, and in “Verified Synthesis of Zeolitic Materials” edited by IZA (http://www.iza-online.org/synthesis/VS_3rdEd.pdf), where he verified the synthesis of MTW zeolite. Also he is ad hoc consultant of the ACS – Petroleum Research Fund. Prof Araujo published over 180 peer-reviewed papers with over 2500 citations, six patents, with H-index of 26, and over 20 invited lectures at congresses.

Prof Pegie Cool

Head of the Laboratory of Adsorption and Catalysis (LADCA)
Department of Chemistry, University of Antwerp, Belgium

Pegie Cool received her PhD degree in Science in 1998 at the University of Antwerp, Belgium. For 6 years she was postdoctoral fellow of the FWO-Flanders. As a postdoctoral researcher she was associated at the Texas A&M University, USA and at the University of Queensland, Australia. In 2004 she became assistant professor and since 2012 she is full professor in the Chemistry Department at the University of Antwerp and head of the Laboratory of Adsorption and Catalysis. 

P. Cool is treasurer and member of the Board of Directors of the European Nanoporous Materials Institute of Excellence (ENMIX), and also Board Member of the Dutch Zeolite Association (DZA). At the University of Antwerp, she is leading the Research Centre of Excellence on Green Chemistry (AGRECHEM) and she is member of the Sustainable Chemistry Network Antwerp (SusChemA). She is member of the editorial board of Microporous and Mesoporous Materials (Elsevier). P. Cool published over 200 papers in international journals and gave more than 30 invited lectures worldwide.

Her main area of expertise is on the development of novel nanoporous materials, such as zeolites, silicas, clays, metaloxides, involving pore size modification and activation for sorption and (photo)catalysis. The main focus is on environmental applications, such as wastewater purification, CO2 conversion, and automotive exhaust gas conversion.

Prof Martin Hartmann

Professor of Catalysis
Erlangen Catalysis Resource Center, Germany

Martin Hartmann studied chemistry at TU Dortmund and obtained his Ph.D. in 1993.  He held postdoctoral positions at the University of Houston (1994-1995), University of Stuttgart (1996-1999) finished his Habilitation in Chemical Technology at TU Kaiserslautern in 2002. In 2005, he accepted an offer to be Professor of Advanced Materials Science at the University of Augsburg.
