I am a Scientist

Michal Marszewski

My research interests include design, synthesis, and characterization of nanostructured materials for environmental and energy-related applications.
I received a Ph.D. degree in the field of Chemistry from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Kent State University and a M.Sc. degree in the field of Chemistry from the Faculty of Advanced Technologies and Chemistry at Military University of Technology.
Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Scholar in Prof. Laurent Pilon's research group in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at University of California, Los Angeles.

What I do

From my Master's, through Ph.D., to Postdoc, I design, synthesize and/or characterize nanostructured materials.
I synthesize nanomaterials, such as nanoporous titania, silica, carbon, alumina, and metal–organic frameworks. Nanoparticles and other nanomaterials too.
I design materials toward their application. So far, I focused on environmental and energy-related applications such as photocatalysis, energy conversion and storage, CO2 adsorption etc.
I characterize materials with physisorption techniques (typically, N2 and CO2 adsorption–desorption), powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), thermogravimetry (TG), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), UV–Vis spectroscopy, and electrochemistry.
Occasionally, I write software. I mainly program in C/C++ with wxWidgets or Qt Framework.
I communicate scientific ideas and results, this includes drafting, writing, correcting, and editing scientific manuscripts, proposals, and presentations.

    Welcome everyone!

    This is my personal website. It mainly serves as my online resume, but I will also post here short articles and tutorials related to Chemistry and Materials Science.

    I hope you will find this website useful!
