Winners of the 2020 EES Lectureship: Yana Vaynzof and Wooyul Kim

We are delighted to announce that the 2020 EES Lectureship has been jointly awarded to Professor Yana Vaynzof and Dr Wooyul Kim!

Established in 2019, the Lectureship recognises and supports those at an early stage of their independent career within the fields of energy and environmental sciences, and is a platform for early career researchers to showcase their research to the wider scientific community.

The recipients will each receive a £500 honorarium, will be given the opportunity to attend and present their research at a leading international online conference, and will be invited to contribute a Review-type article to EES.

Yana is an Associate Professor at the Technical University of Dresden, Germany. Since 2019, she has been the Chair for Emerging Electronic Technologies at the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden, and the Integrated Center for Applied Physics and Photonic Materials. She received her PhD from the University of Cambridge, UK in 2011, and was previously a junior professor at the University of Heidelberg, Germany (2014-2018).

Her research interests focus on emerging photovoltaics based on organic, colloidal quantum dot and perovskite materials. Her work aims to address the challenges of stability and reproducibility of emerging photovoltaic devices by identifying the causes and developing strategies for the mitigation of these challenges. To achieve this, Yana not only utilizes a broad range of experimental methods, but also develops new spectroscopic techniques and methodologies for the study of material physics of novel semiconductors.

Find out more about her research on her website https://cfaed.tu-dresden.de/cfeet-about and on twitter: @vaynzof

She was the only female recipient of an ERC Starting Grant in the panel PE3 Condensed Matter Physics in 2016, and was also the recipient of the 2018 Walter Kalkhof-Rose Memorial Award for outstanding young researchers in the natural sciences as well as the Fulbright-Cottrell Award for innovation in research and teaching.

Wooyul has been an Assistant Professor at Sookmyung Women’s University, South Korea, working in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering since 2016. He received his PhD from Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) in 2012, and went on to carry out postdoctoral research at Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory, USA (2012-2016).

His recent research focuses on using time-resolved operando spectroscopy to investigate photo- (and electro-) catalytic mechanisms, including revealing key reaction intermediates, analysing samples used for water reduction and oxidation, and gaining a microscopic perspective of electrode surfaces in photoelectrochemical cells.

Energy & Environmental Science’s Impact Factor rises to 33.250

Energy & Environmental Science (EES) is delighted to announce its latest Impact Factor has increased to 33.250*.

EES is a leading international journal for the publication of extraordinarily high quality, agenda-setting research relating to energy conversion and storage, alternative fuel technologies and environmental science. With a 5-year impact factor of 32.826 and an Immediacy Index of 5.537, research published in EES has lasting impact and is highly visible within the community as soon as it is published.

Our broad scope and the interdisciplinary nature of research published in the journal, coupled with our rigorous peer review, ensures your work will quickly attract the attention it deserves.

We would like to thank all our authors, readers, reviewers and Editorial & Advisory Board members for their continued support in making the journal a success.

Find the all the RSC’s journals newly published 2018 Impact Factors* here.

*The Impact Factor provides an indication of the average number of citations per paper. Produced annually, Impact Factors are calculated by dividing the number of citations in a year, by the number of citeable articles published in the preceding two years. Data provided by 2018 Journal Citation Reports® (Clarivate Analytics, 2019) (Thomson Reuters)
