Dr. Daniel Lowy
Daniel Lowy, Ph.D.
is Senior Scientist at
Daniel has extensive experience in electrochemistry, including electroorganic synthesis (electroreduction of activated olefins and of carbon dioxide), electroanalytical chemistry (ion-selective electrodes for surfactants and miniaturized reference electrodes to be used in corrosive aqueous solutions, or in aqueous-organic and organic media), microbial fuel cells, sea water batteries, nanotechnologies (including galvanic cells based on phospholipid vesicles and the quantized charging of gold nanoclusters), surface modification (with self-assembled monolayers and via layer-by-layer deposition), and galvanic cells operating with aqueous electrolytes.
He has published over 70 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 2 science books on nano-electrochemistry, and 10 chapters in edited electrochemistry textbooks. In addition, he coauthored 7 awarded patents (five Romanian and two U.S. patents).
Daniel’s papers include Harvesting energy from the marine sediment–water interface II: kinetic activity of anode materials, The first demonstration of a microbial fuel cell as a viable power supply: powering a meteorological buoy, Cyclic voltammetry of biofilms of wild type and mutant Geobacter sulfurreducens on fuel cell anodes indicates possible roles of OmcB, OmcZ, type IV pili, and protons in extracellular electron transfer, Rapid proton-coupled electron-transfer of hydroquinone through phenylenevinylene bridges, and The role of 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase in enhancement of solid-phase electron transfer by Shewanella oneidensis MR-1.
Daniel earned his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at Babeș-Bolyai University, Romania in 1991. He earned his second Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry at West Virginia University in 1996.
