Prof VALENTIN RODIONOV specialises nano- and mesoscale catalytic systems. He is working as Assistant Professor in Department of Chemical Sciences, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia.
Professor Rodionov's research interests are broadly focused on on nano- and mesoscale catalytic systems, such as micelles or colloidal particles, capable of emergent behavior. His group develops enzyme-like self-assembled catalysts using approaches inspired by the biological evolution.
