Prof. Frank Marken
Frank Marken has in September 2004 been appointed to a Senior Lecturer position and in 2011 promoted to a personal chair at the Department of Chemistry, University of Bath. Research in materials electrochemistry is the focus of work with an output of >550 publications (21 completed PhD projects). Professor Frank Marken is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a Fellow of the International Society of Electrochemistry. He was awarded the RSC Theophilus Redwood Lectureship 2008 and the RSC Barker Medal 2018.
Frank organises annual training courses in conferences and workshops on electrochemical techniques (Bath Electrochemistry Winter School, Bath Electrochemical Impedance Summer School, Great Western Electrochemistry Meetings) and national/international scientific meetings (e.g. Electrochem 2011 at Bath and ECHEMS 2014 at Wells, The Faraday Discussion on Nanoelectrochemistry 2018 in Bath).
Research interests are centred on the fundamental mechanistic understanding of multi-interfacial processes and the development of novel electrochemical technologies based on solar energy conversion and in water purification, microporous materials, three-phase junctions, ultrasound and microwave-activation.
