Colm O’Dwyer is Professor of Chemical Energy in the School of Chemistry at University College Cork (UCC).
He received his PhD in 2003 on semiconductor electrochemistry and physics and conducted postdoctoral research on ultracold atom cooling and surface science Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France. From 2008-2012 he was a Science Foundation Ireland Stokes Lecturer on Nanomaterials, and now leads a multidisciplinary research group at the School of Chemistry at UCC. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics. In 2017 he was one of the recipients of the Bell Labs Prize. With talented students, postdocs and collaborators, Prof. O’Dwyer has coauthored over 260 peer-reviewed articles. He has organized or co-organized over 40 ECS symposia in electrochemical and solid-state topics since 2007. Professor O’Dwyer serves as the Vice-President of The Electrochemical Society (ECS).
His current research is focused on 3D printed energy storage devices (batteries and supercapacitors), energy storage materials, optoelectronic materials and processes, and photonic structures. His current research themes cover stereolithographic 3D printing for energy storage devices, sustainable battery materials, and operando photonics for examining optoelectronic materials and battery materials in real-time.
AMBER has a strong emphasis on collaboration. Central to AMBER’s research remit are collaborative projects performed with industry partners, and working with academic, industry and wider stakeholder on international and national research programmes.Get in touch
