Teaching, professional affiliations and service

I am a member of the American Physical Society and the American Chemical Society.

I serve as referee for several journals, including Advanced Materials, Angewandte Chemie, Applied Catalysis, Catalysis Letters, ChemPhysChem, Chemical Physics Letters, Chemistry of Materials, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Journal of Catalysis, Journal of Chemical Physics, Journal of Physical Chemistry Physical Review B, Physical Review Letters, Surface and Coatings Technology.

I have given about 10 seminar talks about my research work in various Universities in Europe and the USA. I have participated in ca 25 conferences in the USA and in Europe, where I presented contributed talks and/or posters. I have given four invited talks in international conferences. I have co-organised the 6th Specialist Meeting on Amorphous Carbon.
