Biography

Dr Micheál D. Scanlon is a physical chemist who specializes in electrochemistry. He is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemical Sciences and Principal Investigator in the Bernal Institute at the University of Limerick (UL) in Ireland.

He was awarded a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant in 2016 and has established his new research group in the Bernal Institute at UL. Previously, through a Science Foundation Ireland Starting Investigator Research Grant (SFI SIRG), he began his independent research career in the Chemistry Department at University College Cork (UCC) in Ireland.
Dr Scanlon was a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Hubert H. Girault at École Polytechnique de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland and Prof. Edmond Magner at the University of Limerick (UL) in Ireland. He completed his PhD studies under the supervision of Prof. Damien W.M. Arrigan (now Curtin University, Perth, Australia) at the Tyndall National Institute in Cork and has a BSc. in Chemistry from UCC.
Dr Scanlon's current research focuses on using electrochemistry at liquid-liquid interfaces for novel approaches to energy conversion and storage, (nano)material self-assembly and electrosynthesis, catalysis of energy related reactions, electroanalysis and bioelectrochemistry.

Research Interests

My primary mission is to understand the fundamental behaviour of electrified liquid-liquid interfaces and harness their untapped potential for applications related to energy conversion and storage, advanced functional materials development, sensor technology and the creation of bio-mimetic molecular machines.
