University of Warsaw
Working as a professor at University od Warsaw, Poland. Completed his PhD in Chemistry. Prof. Renata Bilewicz received her PhD in 1984 in the group of Prof. Zenon Kublik, and habilitation in 1994 in the Department of Chemistry, University of Warsaw. In 1996 she obtained the position of Professor in Warsaw University and in 2000 the title of Professor. In 1990 she was awarded 1 year Fellowship for Young Professors of Eastern Europe by the Swiss Government. PECO fellowship from Brussels (1993) and grant from Swiss National Foundation (1996) supported part of the research of her group in Poland. Her field of expertise is Supramolecular and Biomimetic Electrochemistry. She is especially interested in electron transfer processes in supramolecular and biomolecular assemblies, and in molecular and ion recognition at interfaces. She studies electron transport in biological and biomimetic molecular systems from the viewpoint of their application in electrochemical sensors and biofuel cells. The sensing layers are usually molecular films prepared by the Langmuir-Blodgett and self-assembly procedures, Macrocyclic complexes are often used as active/receptor sites of the layers employed for electrocatalysis and electroanalysis. She is author or co-author of over 150 publications, 4 book chapters and several review papers. During the last 15 years she spent ca. 4 years abroad - mainly in Switzerland, France and USA: New York State University at Buffalo, University of California at Berkeley and North Carolina State University in Raleigh, on either research associate or visiting Professor positions.
