Dr. Csaba Janáky is an assistant professor at Department of Physical Chemistry and Materials Science, University of Szeged, Hungary. He is the principal investigator of the MTA-SZTE „Momentum” Photoelectrochemistry Research Group, supported by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the European Research Council (ERC-Starting Grant). He is an emerging expert of materials science oriented electrochemistry and photoelectrochemistry. He has developed new electrode materials for energy applications, such as CO2 reduction, water oxidation, O2-reduction, and H2 evolution. His interest is focused on the rational design of these electrodes, after establishing structure/property relationships. In the past five years, he published over 50 articles in peer-reviewed journals including four review-, two perspective, and one viewpoint article, with an overall impact factor of 260. His current research group has 2 permanent members, 2 postdocs, 5 PhD students, and 6 undergraduate students. He will join the Editorial Advisory Board of ACS Energy Letters (a premier scientific journal of energy research) from 2018.
