Research Group Leader
Dr. Yury V. Kolen’ko is a Group Leader at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory in Braga, Portugal. He leads a dynamic and interdisciplinary Nanochemistry Research Group, focusing on two complementary research lines: (1) Sustainable Solutions and (2) Energy Materials & Catalysis. The goal of the former is to discover or augment the current, emerging, and future sustainable solutions in water treatment, air purification, smart cities, security, raw materials, and manufacturing of added-value goods. The latter focuses on developing advanced catalytic, thermoelectric, photovoltaic, and magnetic nanomaterials to improve material efficiency while reducing the dependence of the renewable energy sector on critical raw materials.
Yury has authored more than 115 scientific articles and 2 patent applications, along with 3 book chapters. He has also participated in over 10 invited lectures at leading institutes, universities, and international conferences. Yury has coordinated several high-risk, high-impact Portuguese and European projects, including the H2020 FET OPEN SpinCat project.
