Introducing Materials Horizons Editorial Board member Markus Antonietti

Markus Antonietti is the Director for Colloid Chemistry at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces and a Professor at the University of Potsdam.

He is the author of around 520 research papers and has received widespread recognition for his work in polymer chemistry. His awards include the Gerhard-Hess prize of the German Science Foundation (1990), the Goldschmidt-Elhuyar-Award of the Real Sociedad Espanola de Quimica (2003) and the Grignard-Wittig Award of the French Chemical Society (2011). In 2009, he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Macro Group UK for lifetime achievement.

Professor Antonietti is a member of the Berlin Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. He has received honorary degrees from Clarkson University in New York and the University of Stockholm. In 2011, he spent time as a Guest Professor at Zheijand University, Fuzhou University and the University of Science and Technology of China.

Professor Antonietti’s research interests are varied, extending from polymers, through porous materials, to biomimetic principles in material science. His current focus lies in questions of sustainability and the rediscovery of “simplicity” in science.

Besides being an enthusiastic scientist, Markus plays in a rock band and enjoys experimental cooking with family and friends.

Introducing Seth Marder, Editorial Board Chair of Materials Horizons

Seth R. Marder obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1985.  After postdoctoral research at the University of Oxford, and a National Research Council Resident Research Assoc. at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) California Institute of Technology (Caltech), he became a member of the Technical Staff at the JPL.  In 1998, he moved to the University of Arizona where he was a Professor of Chemistry and Optical Sciences.  In 2003, he joined the Georgia Institute of Technology where he is currently a Regents’ Professor of Chemistry and a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering (courtesy).  He was appointed Georgia Power Chair in Energy Efficiency in January 2010.

Dr. Marder was a founding director of the Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics and is the Co-Director of the NSF Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at Georgia Tech.  He is a recipient of the American Chemical Society (ACS) Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award, and Fellow of the Optical Society of America, Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), American Physical Society, Royal Society of Chemistry, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.  His research interests are in the development of materials for nonlinear optics, applications of organic dyes for photonic, display, electronic and medical applications, and organometallic chemistry.
