Angelika Bruckner

Prof. Dr. Angelika Brückner obtained her PhD and habilitation in chemistry from Humboldt University of Berlin. After having worked in Berlin since 1985 at the Central Institute of Inorganic Chemistry, the Centre of Inorganic Polymers and the Institute for Applied Chemistry (ACA), she moved to Rostock in 2009 where she is now deputy director and head of the research department “Catalytic In Situ Studies” of the Leibniz Institute for Catalysis at the University of Rostock (Germany). She has substantial skills and facilities as well as long-term experience (more than 200 publications, h-index: 41) in performing spectroscopic in situ and operando studies of solid catalysts during heterogeneous and homogeneous catalytic gas- and liquid-phase reactions by a variety of techniques, such as EPR, UV-vis-DRS, FTIR, Raman, XRD, XAS, partly established as coupling techniques of several in situ methods in the same experimental setup.
