PROF FRANCOIS AGUEY
Prof. Kondo-Francois Aguey-Zinsou is leading the Material Energy Research Laboratory in nanoscale (MERLin). His research is focused on the physical-chemistry of light metals and their hydrides at the nano-scale. His research group is aiming at designing a first generation materials capable of storing at least 3 mass % of hydrogen in the next 10 years.
Prof. Aguey-Zinsou has over 12 years of research in the field of hydrogen technology. He his also developing novel technologies for the effective conversion of CO2 into synthetic fuels and the effective utilisation of ezymes to catalyse hydrogen based reaction in novel fuel cell systems.
During the last 4 years, Prof. Aguey-Zinsou has secured over $3 million in grant funding and established a hydrogen research laboratory unique to the Australia scene. He has published extensively in high ranking journals and has strong links with industry.
