Prof. Martin Pumera Director
Center for Advanced Functional Nanorobots
University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague
Martin Pumera is the Director of the Center for the Advanced Functional Nanorobots and a Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at the University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague, and Chief Investigator of Future Energy & Innovation Lab at CEITEC, Brno, Czech Republic. He received his Ph.D. at Charles University, Czech Republic, in 2001. After two postdoctoral stays (in the United States and Spain), he became a tenured group leader at the National Institute for Materials Science, Japan, in 2006. In 2010 Martin joined Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, where he worked as a tenured associate professor for almost a decade. Prof. Pumera has broad interests in nanomaterials and microsystems, in the specific areas of electrochemistry and synthetic chemistry of 2D nanomaterials, nanotoxicity, micro and nanomachines, and 3D printing. Prof. Pumera is the Editor-in-Chief of Appl. Mater. Today (IF 8.01) and member of Editorial Boards of ACS Nano, Small, Chem Eur J, Electrochem Commun, ChemElectroChem, Electroanalysis and other journals. Martin is “2017, 2018 and 2019 Highly Cited Researcher” by Clarivate Analytics and the most cited scientist of the Czech Republic and #203 most cited scientist in the World for year 2019.
This 1-hour webinar will highlight self-propelled autonomous nanomachines – topic of recent Nobel Prize 2016 – representing a new paradigm in nanotechnologies. These autonomous nano-devices gather energy from their surroundings, navigate, are able to swarm and to selectively search for specific cells or chemical species.
