Prof. Dr. Sabine Szunerits

Prof. Dr. Sabine Szunerits was borne in Austria, in 1971. She received her MSc in Chemistry from the University of Vienna, Austria, in  1994, and her PhD in Organic Electrochemistry from Queen  Mary and Westfield College, University of London, UK, in  1998. She furthermore obtained a MA in Social Science from  the Open University of London in 2001. From 2004-2009 she  held a position as Professor in “Nano-electrochemistry” at the  Institute National Polytechnique de Grenoble (INP Grenoble),  France and is currently Professor of Physical Chemistry at the  University of Lille 1, France.

Her research is carried out at the  Interdisciplinary Research Institute (IRI).  Her current research  interest include: (i) the development of novel, highly sensitive  plasmonic interfaces for biological sensing, (ii) the  development of controlled surface chemistry particular on  carbon based material (diamond, diamond nanowires,  diamond nanoparticles, diamond like carbon, etc.) and (iii) the  control of surface wetting properties
