Author Information

Katharina Brinkert received her Ph.D. degree from Imperial College London and a M.Sc. from Uppsala University, Sweden. Currently, she is holding a Leopoldina PostDoctoral Scholarship for her work with Prof. Harry B. Gray at the California Institute of Technology. She has specialized in natural photosynthesis and molecular bioenergetics and is presently advancing artificial photosynthesis systems, analyzing and developing photoelectrochemical solar fuel cells. Previously, she was a Research Fellow at the European Space Agency, where she investigated light-assisted hydrogen production in semiconductor-electrocatalyst systems in micro-to-zero-gravity environments for life sustaining applications in space. Her research interests comprise fundamental processes of light-assisted water oxidation, CO2 reduction and N2 fixation, solar energy conversion systems and investigations of hybrid enzyme-semiconductor structures for sensoric and (photo)electrocatalytic applications. Dr. Katharina Brinkert is a member of the International Society of Photosynthesis Research, International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE), The Electrochemical Society (ECS), Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh), German Bunsen Society for Physical Chemistry (DBG), Solar Fuels Network (UK) and she is a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).
