Marc Koper

Leiden University, The Netherlands

Marc Koper is Professor of Surface Chemistry and Catalysis at Leiden University, The Netherlands. He received his PhD degree (1994) from Utrecht University (The Netherlands) with a thesis on nonlinear dynamics and oscillations in electrochemistry. He was an EU Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow at the University of Ulm (Germany) and a Fellow of Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) at Eindhoven University of Technology, before moving to Leiden University in 2005. He was awarded with a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Long-term Fellowship Award in 2011, with the Hellmuth Fischer Medal of the German Society for Chemical Technology (DECHEMA) in 2012, with the Carl Wagner Memorial Award of the Electrochemical Society in 2013, and with the Brian Conway Prize for Physical Electrochemistry of the International Society of Electrochemistry in 2016. His main research interests are in fundamental aspects of electrocatalysis, theoretical electrochemistry, and electrochemical surface science.
