Magdalena Titirici speaks to Chemistry World about her research on biowaste conversion

Magdalena Titirici is interviewed in Chemsitry Word

Magdalena Titirici speaks to Green Chemistry Deputy Editor Anna Simpson in a recent Chemistry World interview.

Magdalena joined the School of Engineering and Materials Science at Queen Mary, University of London, UK, as a reader in materials science at the beginning of 2013. Before that, she spent over six years leading the sustainable materials for renewable energy group at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam, Germany. Research in the Titirici group involves trying to create porous carbon materials from renewable resources such as lignin, cellulose and chitin, as well municipal and agricultural wastes.
