Nanoscale characterization of chemical heterogeneity with the SECM


Michael V. Mirkin was born May 18, 1961 in Alma-Ata, former USSR. He received his Ph. D. in electrochemistry (1987) from Kazakh State University. He did his postdoctoral research at The University of Texas at Austin from 1990 to 1993 and then joined the faculty of Queens College - City University of New York where he currently is a Professor of Chemistry. He had been an Invited Visiting Professor at Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris in 2013.

His professional interests include charge-transfer reactions at solid/liquid and liquid/liquid interfaces, electrochemical kinetics and catalysis, and nanoelectrochemistry. He has published more than 130 journal articles and chapters (h-index 49 Web of Science; 56 Google Scholar). He has been involved in theoretical and experimental development of scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM), applied this method to study various chemical structures and processes on the nanoscale, and co-edited the first monograph on SECM (second edition, 2012) and a monograph on nanoelectrochemistry (2015).
