Meet Professor Stefanie Dehnen

Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers is delighted to welcome Professor Stefanie Dehnen of Philipps University of Marburg to the Editorial Board of the journal!

Stefanie Dehnen obtained her diploma in 1993 and her doctoral degree in 1996 from the University of Karlsruhe (KIT) under the supervision of Dieter Fenske on experimental and theoretical investigations of copper sulfide and selenide clusters. After a postdoctoral stay with Reinhart Ahlrichs (1997) she completed her Habilitation in Inorganic Chemistry in 2004. In the same year she was awarded the Wöhler Young Scientists Award from the German Chemical Society (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker, GDCh). In 2005, she received a Heisenberg Grant from German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) and the State-of-Baden-Württemberg Teaching Award. Since 2006 she has been Full Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at Philipps University of Marburg. In 2006, she also became Director and from 2012-2014, she was Executive Director of the Scientific Center of Materials Science at Philipps-Universität Marburg. She is currently an elected member of the Board of the Division for Inorganic Chemistry (Wöhler-Vereinigung für Anorganische Chemie) at GDCh, elected member and spokesperson of the Review Board (Fachkollegium) for Molecular Chemistry at DFG, and Editorial Board or Editorial Advisory Board Member of several scientific journals. As from 2016, she has been a full member of Göttingen Academy of Sciences and Humanity (Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Göttingen) and a full member of Academy of Sciences and Literature, Mainz (Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Literatur Mainz).

Her current research interests comprise synthesis, formation mechanisms, stability, reactivity, and physical properties of compounds with binary and ternary chalcogenidometalate anions, organotetrel chalcogenide compounds, binary Zintl anions and ternary intermetalloid clusters.
