Yury Kolen’ko

Group Leader

Yury is currently the leader of the Nanochemistry Research Group at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL). His 15+ years of work in Inorganic Chemistry and Material Science has centered on synthesis, functionalization, and assembly of inorganic and hybrid nanomaterials for clean energy technology applications, such as catalysis, electrocatalysis, and thermoelectrics. Particular emphasis is placed on structure–property relationships in functional nanocrystals. Before joining INL, he spent 2 years at Tokyo Institute of Technology, 3 years at Fritz-Haber-Institute of Max-Planck-Society, and 2 years at University of Santiago de Compostela. He received his Ph.D. in Chemistry in 2004 from M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University.
