In this Royal Society of Chemistry talk, Dr David Jenkins from the School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics will explore the complex role of water in the ' Water-Food-Energy-Nexus'.
How can new and existing technologies provide safe water drinking, provide good water for irrigation and farming, while balancing the needs of an ever increasing demand for energy?
Dr Jenkins has over 120 publications and conference presentations. His research has focused on sensor development for the characterisation and optimisation of materials and devices. He has investigated 2-dimensional materials such as graphene and boron nitride, along with thin film silicon and zinc oxide nano-rod structures for solar cells, nanoporous membranes for water treatment and is an expert in nano-toxicology using surface plasmon resonance for detecting ultra-low concentrations of nano particles in water.
This talk is open to all and no booking is required. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any queries.
