About

Natalia Semagina obtained her undergraduate degree in biotechnology and Ph.D. degree in chemical kinetics and catalysis from Russia's Tver State Technical University. After several years of service as a senior lecturer and researcher at the same university, she worked as a research associate in the group of catalytic reaction engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). In 2008 she joined the University of Alberta, where she now holds the position of Professor in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering.

Natalia is also a Director of the Institute for Oil Sands Innovation at the University of Alberta.


Research

Research focus: heterogeneous catalysis.

Our group develops nanostructured catalytic materials, pursuing three goals:

  • reduce or avoid the use of scarce and expensive components, while maintaining or even improving the overall process efficiency;
  • understand the mechanism of the material function in order to further understand how to design proper catalysts; and
  • apply the acquired knowledge to existing and emerging chemical engineering processes in energy and environmental sectors.
