Magda Titirici received her PhD in Materials Chemistry from University of Dortmund in Germany. She then joined the Max-Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces as a Postdoctoral Fellow and later become a Group Leader, starting her independent research on sustainable carbon materials in 2016. Magda has received her Habilitation in 2013 from University of Potsdam. She then moved to UK, to Queen Mary University of London as a reader and in 2014 she was promoted to Full Professor. Magda moved to Imperial College London in January 2019 to take up a Chair in Sustainable Energy Materials.
Magda is the author of over 170 articles and is included in the Global Highly Cited Researchers (Clarivate Analytics) over the past four years. She is the author of 13 book chapters and one book. She also hold 7 patents. Magda has received the Rosenhein Medal from IoM3, an Honorary PhD from University of Stockholm in 2017, the Chinese Academy of Science President Fellowship and the Royal Society of Chemistry Corday-Morgen prize in 2018.
Her current research interests involve sustainable materials with focus on carbon and carbon hybrids produced via hydrothermal processes, waste recycling into advance products, avoidance of critical elements from renewable energy technologies and the development of truly sustainable clean energy storage and conversion paths including Na/K-ion batteries, flexible supercapacitors made from lignin/cellulose, carbon-based O2 electrocatalysis, CO2 capture and conversion and exploring the optoelectronic properties of nanocarbons. Her research is supported by UKRI, EU, British Council and industry.
