Kenneth I. Ozoemena works as the Principal Researcher and Research Group Leader of Renewable Energy Technologies group at the Energy and Processes Unit, in the field of materials science and manufacturing, CSIR, University of Pretoria, South Africa. He serves also as an Extraordinary Professor at the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the University of the Western Cape. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in 2003 from Rhodes University, South Africa, under the supervision of Professor T. Nyokong. Before joining the CSIR in 2009, he had worked at the University of Pretoria as a Senior Lecturer and at Rhodes University as an Andrew Mellon Lecturer. He is a Member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the Electrochemistry Communications. He (co)authored several original articles plus four book chapters. His broad research interests include electrochemistry and electrocatalysis, focusing mainly on nanostructured materials, self-assembled monolayers, and redox-active N4-macrocyclic metal complexes (e.g., metallophthalocyanines) with a view to establishing their potential applications in electrocatalysis, chemo- and biosensing, and in the development of electrochemical energy storage and conversion systems and dye-sensitized solar cells.
