Speakers for INASCON 2014

Prof. Bo Brummerstedt
Department of Chemistry, Aarhus University

Prof. Bo Brummerstedt Iversen is the leader of Center for Materials Crystallography (CMC) at Department of Chemistry, Aarhus University. Collaborating closely with Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO), their research covers broad topics such as energy materials, catalysis, gas storage and nano particles, with his own research partly focused on synthesization and characterization of novel thermoelectric materials. Bo Brummerstedt will be giving the closing talk at INASCON 2014.


Prof. Stanislav Gorb
Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems

Prof. Stanislav Gorb is leader of the Evolutionary Biomaterials Group at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems. He has a background in Biology and Zoology. Today his research involves biological attachment (inspired by animals such as the gecko) with focus on biological surfaces specialised for enhancement or reduction of frictional or adhesive forces. The experimentally testing of different systems leads to an outline of general rules of the interrelationship between structure and function.


Dr. Colm Durkan
Nanoscience Centre, Univeristy of Cambridge

Dr. Colm Durkan is founder and head of the Scanning Probe Microscopy and Nanoelectronics group at the Nanoscience centre of University of Cambridge. He is a fellow of Girton College, Cambridge and Institute of Physics. His research focuses on novel imaging and measuring techniques for probing the properties of matter at the nanoscale. The research also covers electrical and magnetic properties of matter and development of molecular electronic device architectures.


Prof. Justin Wells
Department of Physics, Norwegian University of Science and Technology

Prof. Justin Wells is associate professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). His research involves nanoscale surface science and atomic quantum phenomena. Much of the research is synchrotron based and he thus has a strong connection to the Danish and Swedish synchrotron facilities ASTRID and MAX.


Prof. Jørgen Kjems
Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center, Aarhus University

Prof. Jørgen Kjems is professor at and the director of Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) at Aarhus University. Furthermore, he is professor in molecular biology at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics. His research ranges from nanomedicine and drug delivery to biosensors and RNA/protein biology. Jørgen Kjems will be giving the opening talk at INASCON 2014.


Dr. Rikke Kjærgaard
Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center, Aarhus University

Dr. Rikke Kjærgaard is associate professor in nano-bio-visualization at Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) at Aarhus University. She is a junior group leader of Centre for Membrane Pumps in Cells and Desease (PUMPkin Centre). Furthermore, she is group leader of the Visualization Lab at iNANO, where she is working with scientific data visualization, which will be the topic of her talk. Her research interests include the relation between advanced scientific visualization technologies, artistic practices and the process of making scientific visualizations in contemporary science.
