Meet Dr Emilie Ringe

By .

Materials Chemistry Frontiers is delighted to welcome Dr Emilie Ringe of University of Cambridge to the Editorial Board of the journal!

Emilie Ringe earned her Ph.D. in chemistry and materials science from Northwestern University in 2012. She became the Gott Research Fellow at Trinity Hall as well as a Newton International Research Fellow (Royal Society) in the Electron Microscopy group in the Materials Science and Metallurgy Department at the University of Cambridge, UK. In 2014, she was hired as an assistant professor at Rice University, where she established the Electron Microscopy Center and her research in Earth-abundant and multi metallic plasmonic nanoparticles. In 2018, she moved the University of Cambridge as a lecturer, where she received an ERC Starting grant (1.6M Euros) to pursue her studies of Earth-abundant plasmonics. She has been elected fellow of Gonville & Caius College, and is an associate member of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Her research focuses on multi-scale, multi-dimensional imaging of natural and synthetic materials. Dr Ringe uses correlative, multi-scale approaches, based mainly on electron and light microscopy, to understand how nano- and atomic-scale features affect the bulk optical and electronic properties of crystals.

18th International Symposium on Macromolecule–Metal Complexes (MMC-18).

By .

Materials chemistry Frontiers is very pleased to be sponsoring the18th International Symposium on Macromolecule–Metal Complexes (MMC-18) that will be held from 10-13 June 2019 in Moscow, Russia.

This symposium continues series of conferences that have been organized biennially at different places around the world. The previous MMC conferences were held in Beijing (1985), Tokyo (1987), New Jersey (1989), Siena (1991), Bremen (1993), Kuang-chou (1995), Leiden (1997), Tokyo (1999), New York (2001), Moscow (2003), Pisa (2005), Fukuoka (2007), Termas de Chillán (2009), Helsinki (2011), Greenville (2013), Warsaw (2015) and Tokyo (2017).

Russia hosts MMC-18 in June 2019. Lomonosov Moscow State University with the support of International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) acts as the organizer of the Symposium.

MMC-18 will bring together top scientists and experts from all over the world to share and discuss the latest results in the fundamental aspects of:

  • Macromolecular Metal Complexes – Catalysis and Metal capture
  • Organic-Inorganic Hybrids, Metallopolymers
  • Energy, Electronic, Optical, Photo- and Magnetic Applications
  • Supramolecular Chemistry, Self-Assembly and Polymer Complexes
  • Biomaterials and Biological Applications

MMC-18 will take place on a boat that cruises the Volga River with daily stops at historic sites. We will visit Uglich, Mishkin, Tver. A huge number of attractions and unique architectural sites are concentrated in these towns. Today they are picturesque places where you can relax from the hustle of the metropolis, enjoy nature and get acquainted with Russian history.

DEADLINES

28.02.2019 Deadline for abstracts submission
30.03.2019 Notification on acceptance of abstracts
