We are delighted to introduce Professor Jens Nørskov as Energy & Environmental Science’s new Editorial Board Member.
Jens Nørskov is a Villum Kann Rasmussen Professor at Technical University of Denmark. He earned his PhD in theoretical physics from Aarhus University in Denmark in 1979, and is well known for his work on the theoretical description of surfaces, catalysis, materials and nanostructures.
Nørskov’s research aims at developing theoretical methods and concepts to understand and predict properties of materials. The aim is to understand which surface properties determine their chemical activity and to use that insight, in combination with large-scale computations, to design new catalytic surfaces and nano-structures. Applications are primarily in energy transformations, including (photo-) electrochemical water splitting, CO2 reduction, nitrogen reduction and syngas reactions.
