Microtechnology-Based Energy and Chemical Systems, Nanolaminates and Transparent Electronics, Nanoscale Metrology and Nanoelectronics, Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing


Líney Árnadóttir received her B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Iceland 2001 and M.S. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Washington 2007. Her thesis work included experimental electrochemistry in a micro-reactor at high temperatures in Prof. Eric M. Stuve’s research group and Density Functional Theory calculations in Prof. Hannes Jónsson research group. Before joining the faculty at OSU she worked as a research associate (Post. Doc.) at NESAC/Bio doing surface analysis of biomaterials and applying surface analysis techniques to determine protein orientation on self-assembly monolayers.

Dr. Árnadóttir research expertise and interests include combing experimental techniques, theoretical calculations and modeling to understand surface interactions and catalysis for renewable energy, nanotechnology and sustainability. Surface characterization of complex materials (thin films, biomaterials, corrosion surface) via surface analysis techniques (Time of Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry, X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy), and electrochemistry for clean hydrogen production and fuel cell applications.
