Promotion at SB of one Associate and three Adjunct Professors
At its meeting of 3-4 March 2021, the ETH Board has promoted Jeremy Luterbacher to Associate Professor and awarded the title of Adjunct Professor to three researchers of the School of Basic Sciences (SB).
Professor Jeremy Luterbacher, currently Tenure Track Assistant Professor at EPFL, has been promoted as Associate Professor of Chemical Process Engineering in the School of Basic Sciences (SB)
Jeremy Luterbacher’s work on biomass conversion technologies includes looking for an alternative to oil for manufacturing plastics and other common chemicals. He has won a number of prizes (including an ERC Starting Grant in 2017) for his outstanding results in the field of chemical engineering. This highly creative researcher is head of the Laboratory of Sustainable and Catalytic Processing, a field in which he is internationally regarded as a rising star.
Dr Oleg Boyarkine, currently Senior Scientist at EPFL's School of Basic Sciences (SB), has been awarded the title of Adjunct Professor at EPFL
Oleg Boyarkine’s research focuses on experimental molecular spectroscopy using lasers, and its application in a variety of areas. He was instrumental in EPFL's success with the spectroscopy of cryogenically cooled biomolecular ions from the outset and played a pioneering role in this field internationally.
Dr Hugo Dil, currently Scientist at EPFL's School of Basic Sciences (SB), has been awarded the title of Adjunct Professor at EPFL
Hugo Dil investigates the physics of condensed matter and has achieved groundbreaking results using the dedicated experiment station he developed at the Swiss Light Source (SLS) at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). Researchers from all over the world now compete to use this unique installation at the PSI and benefit from his expertise.
Dr Marcel Drabbels, currently Senior Scientist at EPFL's School of Basic Sciences (SB), has been awarded the title of Adjunct Professor at EPFL
Marcel Drabbels conducts research in the field of superfluid helium nanodroplets. His outstanding achievements in the area of molecular beam machines contributed to the construction of the low density matter (LDM) beamline for the FERMI free electron laser project in Trieste. This still functions on the same principles and is currently FERMI’s most successful beamline.
