He is currently Professor in Physical Chemistry and Head of School of Chemistry TCD. His research interests encompass Physical & Analytical Electrochemistry and the application of the latter to Raw Materials. Professor Lyons heads the SFI TEECE Group in the School of Chemistry & CRANN which examines nanostructured electrode materials for hydrogen production, electrochemical energy conversion , charge storage , electrocatalysis and electrochemical sensing. He has been in receipt of significant SFI Principal Investigator, TIDA, EI , Industrial, and EIT KIC funding in recent years. He currently is Lead TCD PI with a remit to develop TCD raw materials activity and engagement with the EIT-Raw Materials KIC.

Professor Lyons’s current work in AMBER is founded on his extensive experience in Physical/Analytical Electrochemistry and includes contribution of electrochemical characterization methodologies to the analysis of 2D nanostructured materials deposited on porous conductive 3D support structures (either foam or 3D printed) for supercapacitor and electrocatalytic applications.

Open Call for EDGE Scholarship Applications

EDGE Fellowships are for experienced researchers of any nationality and residing worldwide, seeking a prestigious career development fellowship based in one of ten of Ireland’s third-level institutes. EDGE aims to form the next generation of thought leaders in ICT and develop their skill set to actively interact, collaborate and engage with industry. EDGE fellows will be researchers who are technically strong in their own discipline and capable of performing high-value, interdisciplinary research. The fellowships will provide researchers with the opportunity to work closely with their choice of academic and industry partners relevant to their research, training and professional career development objectives.
