Department of Materials appoints Katharina Marquardt

1 Sep 2023

We are delighted announce Dr Katharina Marquardt will be joining the ZERO Institute in September 2023 as new Associate Professor in the Department of Materials with Tutorial Fellow duties at St Edmund Hall. Katharina will be the first Materials appointment with The ZERO Institute.

Katharina gave a departmental colloquium in January 2019, when she spoke to us about 'grain boundary planes in materials of the Earth's mantle'.

Katharina came to Oxford from Imperial College London, where she was Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Engineering, Department of Materials. 

The ZERO Institute was launched by the Departments of Engineering Science, Materials, and Geography and the Environment in 2022 to bring together leading academics from a range of disciplines to address questions surrounding zero-energy systems and their implementation. It aims to establish Oxford as a centre of research excellence and thought leadership on global and equitable zero-carbon transition and has secured a £3.25m investment from the University’s Strategic Research Fund.
