Dr. Angelika Holzinger

Postdoctoral Researcher

Angelika studied chemistry at Ulm University in Germany and completed her Ph.D. in the Institute of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry (IABC, Ulm University) under the supervision of Apl. Prof Christine Kranz. Her Ph.D. research was on the combination technique of AFM-SECM and the integration of different electrochemical sensor materials in AFM probes for bioanalytical applications. In 2018, Angelika joined the Scanlon Electrochemistry Laboratory working on the characterization of novel ultrathin films by microscopic techniques as Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (SECM), SEM, and STEM.
Currently, she is an Irish Research Council (IRC) Postdoctoral Fellow (Project ID: GOIPD/2020/821) working on the investigation of hybrid nanomaterials through electropolymerisation at an electrified liquid|liquid interface for novel electrochemical sensor materials.
Angelika's research interests are focused on electrochemistry, novel sensor materials and the visualization of small-scale electrochemical processes at micro interfaces. Her expertise is on the detailed characterization of new nanostructures on morphological properties, for example by SEM, STEM, and 3D FIB/SEM, as well as electrochemical performances, detected amongst others by SECM.
