Gabor Patonay is Professor of Analytical Chemistry at Department of Chemistry, Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA 30303, USA. He obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Technical University of Budapest, Hungary. In 1982 he left Hungary and became a Postdoctoral Associate in Professor Isiah Warnerâ€™s group in the Department of Chemistry at Emory University specializing in fluorescence spectroscopy, separations and instrument development. He joined the faculty of Georgia State University (GSU) in 1987, where he is currently Professor. Dr. Patonayâ€™s research interests at GSU include many analytical and environmental chemistry areas, specifically NIR fluorescence related research developing new bioanalytical and biomedical applications using NIR probes and labels; biomolecule separations using HPLC and CE; development of presumptive forensic analytical techniques and use of nanotechnology in bioanalytical chemistry. Dr. Patonay published over 200 papers and presented over 250 conference presentations. He also is the Editor-In-Chief of Analytical Chemistry Insights.
Dr. Vitaliy Budarin graduated from Kiev State University (Ukraine) with an MSc (1983) and PhD (1988) in Chemistry. Following postdoctoral research at Kiev State In 1996 he was appointed to a Lectureship in Chemistry at Kiev State University and was promoted rapidly to Associate Professor in 1998. In 2002 he moved to the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence (GCCE. From 2012 he became Head of the Microwave technology platform group. From 2017 he is Head of Mesoporous Materials TP and the GCCEâ€™s Principle Scientist. Dr. Vitaliy Budarin experience has led to more than 140 research papers in peer reviewed journals, three patent, four patent applications and five book chapters. Dr. Budarinâ€™s h-factor is 33.
Prof. Dr. Thomas BrÃ¼ck holds the Werner Siemens Chair for Synthetic Biotechnology at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. His research group focuses on the development of new bioprocesses from biological waste materials targeted at the chemical, feed and pharmaceutical industry. Thomas Brueck studied Chemistry, Biochemistry and Management Science at Keele University, UK, where he graduated 1996 with a Dual BSc.. In 1997, he obtained his M.Phil. degree in Molecular Medicine from the same University. Thomas received his Ph.D in 2002 for studies in Peroxidase Enzymology from the University of Greenwich (UK). His post-doctoral career was spent at Florida Atlantic University (Boca Raton, USA). In 2006, he returned to Germany, were he joined SÃ¼d-Chemie AG, where he held various research and high level managerial positions including the position Portfolio Manager IP and Technology.
Laszlo T. Mika received his Ph.D in organic- and organometallic chemistry at Eotvos University, Budapest, Hungary. He works as an associate professor and head of Laboratory of Catalysis at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics and became the head of Department of Chemical and Environmental Process Engineering in 2016. His research activity documented by about 40 scientific papers covers different area of green chemistry (biomass conversion, applications of alternative reaction media, and design new catalytic systems).
I hold a Ph.D. degree in Electrochemistry from the University of Southampton, England, (1989). From 1989 till 1990, I worked as an Assistant Research Scientist at the "Wolfson Center for Electrochemical Science" in the University of Southampton. From 1990 till 1998, I worked as an Assistant Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the American University of Beirut (AUB), the Lebanon, where my research interests expanded to include corrosion, metal finishing, radioactive labeling, and scanning probe microscopy. In 1998, I took up an Assistant Professorship position of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, where I am currently an Associate Professor carrying out my duties. I have published more than 40 papers. I am a reviewer at several international journals.
Dr Mahmoud Mohsin has a Bachelor degree in chemistry, from Mosul University/ Iraq. He obtained his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Polymer Science and Technology from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) UK. Immediately after graduation in 1984, he worked as a Senior Research Fellow at Stirling University, UK. In 1990 he joined the newly established the Interdisciplinary Research Center (IRC) in Polymer Science and Technology at Leeds University, UK. In September, 2000 he moved from Leeds to join the Chemistry Department at the United Arab Emirates University where he taught several courses in Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering, for both Graduates and Undergraduates students. In September 2011, he was offered a place at the University of Sharjah, where he is currently working as an Associate Professor of Organic Polymer Chemistry.
