Solid state NMR: method and applications

Marco D'Abramo is glad to invite you at the department seminar:

Solid state NMR: method and applications


Marina Carravetta
University of Southampton

Seminar will by held on february 21 2020 at 10.00 a.m. in Sala Parravano.

Solid state NMR is a very versatile technique to study a wide range of solid materials which lack long range order. This presentation will provide an overview of common NMR methods and their applications. We will then focus more closely on new methods developed recently in our research group for the study of nitrogen 14 NMR, optimal control theory for NMR signal enhancements, applications of multi-nuclear solid state NMR for the study of solid state acid catalysis, cryogenic NMR applications to superconducting materials. 

Marina Carravetta
Associate Professor in the Magnetic Resonance area in the School of Chemistry at the University of Southampton, since 2016. She was previously a Royal Society University Research Fellow since 2007. Before that, she was a postdoctoral fellow in Southampton. She obtained her Ph.D. from University of Stockholm (Sweden) in 2003 and completed her undergraduate studies in University of Calabria (Italy) with honours.
Marina's area of speciality is NMR, where she has a long track record of contributions in the areas of methodology developments (including symmetry based R sequences, singlet state NMR, nitrogen-14 detection, spin counting methods to name a few) as well as in the applications of solid state NMR to Materials Science, with particular focus on NMR on high-temperature superconductors and catalytic studies.
Marina was awarded the BRSG-NMRDG Annual Prize for Excellent Contribution to Magnetic Resonance by an Early Career Researcher in 2011 and the Ernst Award in 2004.
Marina is year tutor for year 3 and year 4 in Chemistry and a member of the steering group of WiSET (Women in Science, Engineering and Technology), overseeing their webpages and blogs.
Marina is the Chair of the Institute of Physics magnetic resonance division (known as BRSG).
