Balázs Endrődi

My name is Balázs Endrődi, and I'm an assistant professor at the University of Szeged (SZTE), Hungary, Department of Physical Chemistry and Materials Science. In fact, SZTE is my Alma mater - I did all my university studies here, including the BSc, MSc and PhD (2015) in Chemistry. From my second year at SZTE I have been involved in research projects in electrochemistry. This included studying different conducting polymers, optimizing the synthesis conditions and testing these materials in different applications.
From 2016 I have been involved in research projects related to the electrochemical valorization of CO2. From this time my reseach activity focuses on applied electrochemical problems. As a postdoctoral fellow I spent 2.5 years in Stockholm, Sweden, working at KTH, the Royal Institute of Technology. During this time I was involved in an industrial collaboration, aiming to increase the energy efficiency and sustainability of electrolytic chlorate production.
I returned home to SZTE in 2019, to continue working on CO2 reduction. Luckily I didn't have to start from zero, and didn't have to work alone. During my postdoctoral years the Photoelectrochemistry research group (PI: Csaba Janáky) and ThalesNano Inc. made a great progress in purchasing and assembling the necessary instruments for this project, and also design the first electrolyzer cells. We have been working together ever since, aiming to improve the cell performance by optimizing the components of the electrolyzer and the operation conditions. Furtmermore, we aim for scaling-up this process, which includes increasing the lateral size of the electrolyzer cell, and forming multi-layer electrolyzer cells.
