Assoc. Prof. Aleksey Vedyagin

Speech Title : Fabrication of the Functionalized Carbon Nanomaterials via Catalytic Pyrolysis of Heteroatom-Containing Compounds

In 1997 I was graduated from Omsk State University. From 1999 to 2001 I was post-graduate student at Boreskov Institute of Catalysis of Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia. I defended my PhD thesis entitled “Catalytic dehydrogenation of methanol over supported copper catalysts” in 2005. From 2004 till 2014 I was an associate professor at Novosibirsk State Technical University, Russia. At the same time, since 2004 till 2008 I was a scientific researcher at Boreskov Institute of Catalysis. In 2008 I became a scientific secretary of the institute. Now I am a deputy director on science of BIC, head of Laboratory for nanostructured catalysts and sorbents research, head of Department of materials science and functional materials. My scientific interests are heterogeneous catalysis, oxide and metal catalysts, carbon nanostructures, carbon-based composites, dense and porous membranes, nanomaterials, nanotoxicology, etc.
