Dr Nikolay Cherkasov

Warwick Zeeman Lecturer, PhD (Moscow State University), AMIChemE

(outside of the working hours – Director of Stoli Chem)


Research Interests:

Catalysts for hydrogenation, Catalysis in thin layers, Digitizing heterogeneous catalysis, Mechanisms of catalytic reactions, Process automation, Predictive process control.

PhD studentship openings:

There is a funded PhD student position for a UK/EU applicant. International students may apply but must meet the difference in cost. There 4 possibilities I am particularly interested – these use automation of mundane laboratory experimentation to open new ways to catalytic reactions understand and develop novel more efficient catalysts.

Please see the link above for further details.
