Erwin Kessels Interview

How does someone become successful in his/her job? My suggestion is to ask Dr. Erwin Kessels. There is no doubt that he has accomplished a lot in his career: he became a full professor at a young age, is a sought-after speaker at international conferences, has authored more than 200 publications and recently became Associate Editor of the Journal of… Read more →

Dr. Erwin Kessels is our new Scientist of the Week!

       I remember meeting Erwin several years ago through my Italian-Dutch circle of friends. As we tend to attend the same conferences, I have had the pleasure of attending several of his talks. Throughout the years he has expanded from strictly performing plasma research to becoming a pioneer in the field of atomic layer deposition (ALD). His experience spans from… Read more →

Souvik Ghosh Interview

Souvik Ghosh, our Scientist of the Week, spends countless hours in the Sankaran Laboratory (http://microplasma.case.edu) at Case Western Reserve University. He is very creative and innovative. I have often observed him construct electrodes and components of research equipment using low-cost materials that are available in the lab. He works long hours and it is more than obvious that he enjoys… Read more →

Souvik Ghosh is our new Scientist of the Week!

Working with undergraduate and graduate students is something I have always enjoyed throughout my career. Some of them really stick out due to their hard work, scientific knowledge, creativity and personality. Souvik Ghosh definitely possesses all of the previously mentioned characteristics. I am happy to feature him as our new Scientist of the Week!  He provided a very exciting interview… Read more →

Brendan Niemira Interview

     When I visited Dr. Niemira’s laboratory, I was impressed with the plethora of plasma equipment that he is using. All kinds of atmospheric plasma-based systems were present to accommodate both small and large area decontamination of food products. While some of the equipment was purchased, Brendan and his team have dedicated a lot of effort to design custom-built systems… Read more →

Fiorenza Fanelli Interview

     About 13 years ago I met a young scientist who had just started working on atmospheric plasmas. At that time, I was about to complete my doctoral studies in the field of low pressure, radiofrequency plasmas, but I was fascinated by the potential of generating plasmas using atmospheric pressure conditions. Her excitement was so evident every time she… Read more →

Dr. Zdenko Machala is our new Scientist of the Week!

     Our featured scientist this week is one of the most recognized in the field of Plasma Medicine, Dr. Zdenko Machala. I have read several of his papers and I am impressed with his utilization of emission spectroscopy and other plasma diagnostics to identify the species responsible for the antimicrobial activity of atmospheric pressure plasmas. His expertise and depth of… Read more →
