Professor Baranova received her M.Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering (1999) and Ph.D in Chemistry (2003) from the Ukrainian State University of Chemical Engineering (Ukraine). She then pursued her studies at the Institute of Chemical Science and Engineering at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland), where she completed her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering under the supervision of Prof. Ch. Comninellis in 2005. Her current research focuses on electrochemical promotion of catalytic reactions for environmental protection and the design of novel catalytic systems. Professor Baranova’s interests include synthesis, characterization and application of well-defined nanoscopic metals, alloys and composites to catalysis and fuel cells.
