AIAS Seminar: Kirsten Marie Ørnsbjerg Jensen

The Material World - An atomic view of new materials for future energy technologies

2020.07.07 | AIAS

Date Mon 30 Nov
Time 14:15 15:30
Location Virtual (and possibly the AIAS Auditorium)

The talk is streamed via Zoom. Join URL: https://aarhusuniversity.zoom.us/j/65593796440 to attend virtually. If the talk changes to a hybrid format, both held 'live' in the AIAS auditorium and via Zoom it will be announced here.

Speaker: Kirsten Marie Ørnsbjerg Jensen, Associate Professor, Dept. of Chemistry, University of Copenhagen 



The development of new materials for energy technologies such as batteries and catalysts is critically dependent on understanding the build-up of materials on the atomic scale, i.e. the atomic arrangement in matter. We look into materials and how they function in e.g. batteries using intense X-rays from large scale synchrotron sources, allowing us to establish the relation between material function and their structure, opening for development of new and improved energy materials for a cleaner future. 

Short bio


Kirsten M. Ø. Jensen is an associate professor at Department of Chemistry at University of Copenhagen. She received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from Aarhus University in 2013. Following a postdoc position at Columbia University, she started her research group in Copenhagen in 2015. The research in her group concerns nanomaterials, focusing especially on the use of X-ray and neutron scattering for materials chemistry.

What is an AIAS Seminar?

The AIAS Seminar is a session of seminars held by the AIAS fellow or by other speakers proposed by the fellows. In each seminar, one fellow will present and discuss his/her current research and research project, closing off with a question and discussion session.

All seminars are held in English.
