Professor Phil Bartlett has been named as the next President of the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE). He will take on the role in January 2017 after two years as President-elect, starting in 2015.

Among his responsibilities, Phil will organise the Society's annual meetings which bring together around 2,000 of the world's leading electrochemists to discuss current issues. ISE was founded in 1949 as this research area was becoming significant within chemistry; it aims to further electrochemical science and technology and promote international cooperation.

"I am honoured to be the next ISE President and look forward to working with colleagues to promote electrochemistry," says Phil. "The society carries out much worthwhile work to advance electrochemistry around the world and I am particular impressed by its support for scientists in developing countries."

Head of Chemistry Professor Phil Gale comments: "I'm delighted that Phil has been elected as the next President of the ISE.  This reflects Phil's research leadership in electrochemistry and nanotechnology and it is very pleasing that he will now head this important international organisation."

Phil heads Electrochemistry at Southampton and is also Deputy Head of Chemistry for Strategy, and Associate Dean for Enterprise in the Faculty of Natural and Environmental Sciences. He is the fourth chemist from the University of Southampton to hold this prestigious post after Professor Martin Fleischmann (1973-4), Professor Roger Parsons (1981-2) and Professor Sir Graham Hills (1983-4).
