Neuron Award 2022 for Mariya Shamzhy

Mariya Shamzhy from the Department of Physical and Macromolecular Chemistry (CUCAM Research Centre) is tackling one of the long-standing key challenges for materials scientists - understanding how heterogeneous catalysts facilitate chemical reactions, at the atomic level. In particular, it is focused on the synthesis of new types of zeolites, their characterization and the explanation of their catalytic properties. The results so far promise new concepts for inorganic chemistry or chemical engineering. Mariya Shamzhy graduated from Lomonosov University and received her PhD degree from the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences.
