Speaker information

Prof Gary Attard, University of Liverpool. Gary Anthony Attard is Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Liverpool. He received his PhD degree (1987) from Liverpool University (supervised by Prof. Sir David. A. King) on the topic of two dimensional surface alloys on tungsten. He subsequently worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow under the guidance of Prof. Roger Parsons at Southampton University (studying well-defined electrode surfaces using a combined electrochemical-UHV approach) and this is where his love of electrochemistry began. In 1989, he was appointed as Lecturer at Cardiff University and in 1999 was promoted to Professor. His research interests are interdisciplinary encompassing both fundamental and applied aspects of electrochemical and electrocatalytic processes. Areas of particular interest include the intrinsic Surface chirality of kinked single crystal electrode surfaces, well-defined bimetallic electrodes, the application of surface electrochemistry to problems in catalysis and more recently, the use of modified bacteria as catalysts. He is a registered member of Division 6 (Molecular Electrochemistry), Division 2 (Bioelectrochemistry) and Division 7 (Physical Electrochemistry) of the ISE and was elected Chair of the Physical Electrochemistry Division of the ISE in 2004. He is also a member of the ACS, ECS and RSC. In 1998, he co-authored the Oxford Primer Series undergraduate textbook Surfaces and as External Examiner in Physical Chemistry for several UK Universities has promoted the importance of electrochemistry to the undergraduate curriculum.
