Timo Gans

I am a Full Professor and hold a Chair in the Department of Physics at the University of York (UK) since 2011. I was awarded a PhD in Physics from the University of Essen (Germany) in 2001. I held previous academic positions at Dublin City University (Ireland), Ruhr-University Bochum (Germany) and Queen’s University Belfast (Northern Ireland, UK).

My research focusses on plasma science and technology, in particular plasma dynamics and chemical kinetics with applications in manufacturing, health and environment. I develop and employ advanced optical diagnostics with specific interest in laser spectroscopic techniques and use synergies through combining it with multi-scale computational modelling. For both I use state-of-the-art experimental and computational facilities at the York Plasma Institute. In the PIONEER project we are involved in the fundamental investigations of CO2 dissociation pathways and their optimisation for different applications
