Norbert graduated in physics from the University of Debrecen in 2006 under the supervision of Prof. Jozsef Palinkas. Then he volunteered to the Hungarian Defence Forces, where he served as a military pilot for 2 years. In 2008 Norbert went to The Netherlands to obtain his Ph.D. at the Delft University of Technology in chemical engineering. After defending his Ph.D. in 2012, he stayed as a postdoctoral research associate at Delft for almost 1 year. Then Norbert went to the USA to do a one-year postdoctoral research at Purdue University in developing novel drug delivery methods. The next station in his career was at California Institute of Technology, where focused on the fabrication of nanostructured fuel cell electrodes as a postdoctoral research associate. Soon Norbert got promoted to a (staff) research associate in 2015 at Caltech, and he expended his research with producing pharmaceutical mats and catalyst nanofibers. He went on to become a Lecturer in Chemical Engineering - Diamond Jubilee in Chemical Engineering at The University of Edinburgh in 2016. Norbert’s research focuses on fabricating nanostructured batteries, fuel cells and supercapacitors on the energy side; and on fabricating nanostructured pharmaceutical mats and artificial organs on the medical side.
