Bruno G. Pollet is full Professor of Renewable Energy at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim. He is also a Visiting Professor at the University of Ulster, Professor Molkov’s HySAFER (UK). He was a Visiting Professor at the University of Yamanashi at Professor Watanabe’s labs (Japan). He was also Chief Technology Officer at Power and Water (KP2M Ltd, UK) designing and developing energy storage and water purification systems, and Head of R&D at Coldharbour Marine Ltd (UK) working in the areas of water treatment/disinfection and CO2 conversion. His research covers a wide range of areas in Electrochemical Engineering, Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Sono-electrochemistry (Power Ultrasound in Electrochemistry) from the development of novel materials, hydrogen fuel cell to water treatment/disinfection demonstrators & prototypes. Bruno was a full Professor of Energy Materials and Systems at the University of the Western Cape (South Africa) and R&D Director of the National DST Hydrogen South Africa (HySA) Systems Competence Centre. He worked for many industries (e.g. Johnson Matthey Fuel Cells as MEA scientist) and was a co-founder and an Associate Director of the University of Birmingham Centre for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Research (UK). He was awarded a Diploma in Chemistry and Material Sciences from the Université Joseph Fourier (Grenoble, France), a BSc (Hons) in Applied Chemistry from Coventry University (UK) and an MSc in Analytical Chemistry from The University of Aberdeen (UK). He also gained his PhD in Physical Chemistry in the field of Electrochemistry and Sonochemistry under the supervision of Professors J. Phil Lorimer & T.J. Mason at the Sonochemistry Centre, Coventry University. He undertook his PostDoc in Electrocatalysis at the Liverpool University Electrochemistry group led by Professor David J. Schiffrin. Bruno has published many scientific publications, articles, book chapters and books in the field of Sonoelectrochemistry, Fuel Cells, Electrocatalysis and Electrochemical Engineering (over 200 publications so far). Bruno is member of RSC, IAHE, RSSAf, SAHA, SCI and member of editorial board journals (International Journal of Hydrogen Energy/Electrocatalysis/Ultrasonics Sonochemistry/Renewables-Wind, Water and Solar/etc). He is also fluent in French and Spanish.
Bruno lives in Norway with his wife Emma and his child Hugo. In his spare time, his interests include reading and writing Scientific & Engineering papers, wine & food tasting, cycling, skiing, football, gym, pétanque, travelling and listening to soul/house/dance/jazz/classical music.
