Dr. Bruna Lobo is voted runner-up for “best poster” award at the InSynX workshop held in São Paulo, Brazil
The German-Brazilian Workshop on Breaking Boundaries of In Situ Synchrotron X-ray Methods (InSynX) took place from March 6th to March 10th in São Paulo, Brazil. Organized in collaboration by the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) and the Institute of Chemistry (IQ) of the University of São Paulo (USP), the InSynX workshop aimed to bring together early career researchers and leading experts from German and Brazilian research institutions to develop and strengthen ongoing bilateral collaborations between scientists of the two countries working with synchrotron radiation for the in situ and ex situ study of materials.
The group of Prof. Dr. Christina Roth, and the University of Bayreuth were represented at the InSynX workshop by Dr. Bruna Lobo, a postdoctoral researcher at the group. Her research interests mainly lie in materials science, energy conversion systems (such as fuel cells), CO2 conversion and water electrolysis. As such, X-ray methods are important tools she uses to understand the mechanisms through which the studied systems convert reactants to products.
At the InSynX workshop, Dr. Lobo presented her latest work on electrocatalysts for fuel cells and water electrolyzers as a poster, where she determined which species are adsorbed on the catalyst, depending on the experimental conditions as well as the geometry and location of the adsorbed species. For her work and poster presented, Dr. Lobo was placed 2nd in the “best poster” award.
We congratulate Dr. Lobo for her achievement and extend our best wishes to her for continued success in her future research endeavors.
