Iwona Koltsov

 

PhD Eng.

 

An expert in thermal analysis field, especially in coupled techniques in STA-FTIR-QMS. Experienced in nanomaterials synthesis and their characterization, and investigation of functional properties of hydrogen storage materials.

 

EDUCATION:

Iwona Koltsov (previously Malka) in 2007 she obtained M.Sci. Eng in Chemistry with scientific specialty Organic Technology and Catalysis (Warsaw University of Technology, Chemistry Department, Institute of Homogeneous Catalysis and Organometallic Chemistry). In 2013 she obtained Ph.D. in Material Science with scientific specialty in Functional Materials (Military University of Technology, Department of Chemistry and New Technologies; dissertation title: Study of the structure and properties of magnesium hydride with metal halide additives). In 2013 she also graduated with a Postgraduate Professional Management Qualification from Warsaw School of Economics, Department of Economy Management (dissertation title: Evaluation of strategic analysis of The Innovative Park Celestynów-Unipress Polish Academy of Science).

 

WORK EXPERIENCE (2009-2017):

Dr Koltsov started her career from a part-time Research Teaching Assistant positon (2009 – 2013) at Military University of Technology (MUT), Department of Advanced Materials and Technologies, where she conducted research in several projects focused on hydrogen storage and fuel cells. In 2013 she received a fellowship from Foundation for Polish Science - START program (2013).

From 2011 to 2014 Dr Koltsov held Research Physicist position at Laboratory of Nanostructure, Institute of High Pressure Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences (IHPP-PAS). Dr Koltsov was specialised in a nanotechnology and bio-nanomedicine projects. Her main duties were: nanomaterial characterisation (bio-nanomaterials and nano-metal oxides), nanomaterials market evaluation, characterisation of nano-hydroxyapatite, monitoring of ISO standards for nanomaterials.

During the same period she was also appointed as a subcontracted expert to National Physics Laboratory (NPL, UK) for four years. Her main technical input was focused on nanocharacterisation to the CEN/TC 352/WG 1/PG 1 standard entitled: “Nanotechnologies - Guidance on measurands for characterising nano-objects and materials that contain them“. She held a position of Research Assistant in 2014 at IHPP PAS. She took an unpaid leave take a position of Research Associate (2014 – 2015) at School of Chemistry, College of Science & Engineering, University of Glasgow, UK. She was working on “Transport Grand Challenge: Energy Storage, CROSSING BOUNDARIES IN ENERGY STORAGE project, where she lead the searching for the new materials for H2 storage based on Metal Hydrides, and fuel cells. During that time she was founded (in 2014) by National Science Centre and became project leader in SONATA call project conducted at IHPP (The role of grain size control on the formation of phases in the zirconia-alumina (ZrO2-Al2O3) system” Poland: 2014-2018). In 2015 Dr Koltsov was promoted to Assistant Professor at Laboratory of Nanostructure, IHPP PAS which she occupies now.
