Biography

Mike Lyons is Professor in Physical Chemistry and Head of School of Chemistry. He is a PI in the Centre for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices (CRANN), and in the SFI funded AMBER National Centre, Trinity College Dublin. Born in Cork city he was educated in CBC Cork and is a graduate of University College Cork (1979) where he read Chemistry. and Mathematical Physics. Professor Lyons obtained his Ph.D degree from the same University in 1983 under the supervision of the late Prof. Declan Burke in metal oxide electrochemistry. He worked with the late Prof. John Albery FRS and Prof. Brian Steele at Imperial College London on metal oxide electro-catalysis before being appointed to a lectureship in Physical Chemistry at Trinity College Dublin in 1984. He was elected to Fellowship, Trinity College Dublin, in 1992 on the basis of publication and research. His research interests encompass Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry and nanomaterials , and in a publication output of two books and more than 130 papers, he has made significant contributions to electrode kinetics, metal oxide electro-catalysis, electroactive polymer electrochemistry, mathematical modelling of electrochemical systems, electrochemical biosensors, and carbon nanotube electrochemistry. His h-index is currently 36. His Trinity Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Electrocatalysis Group, is currently engaged in developing novel nanomaterials for use as catalysts in water electrolysis and fuel cell devices for use in energy conversion and storage device applications. His group is also developing non enzymatic electrochemical biosensors based on metal oxide modified electrodes for bio-diagnostic applications and for pH sensing and in developing anode materials for metal electro-winning for the mining industry. He currently leads TCD activity in the field of Raw Materials within the EIT Raw Materials KIC a multinational EU funded initiative involving industry, research institutes and academia. In this capacity he currently coordinates a major industry focused up scaling project and is Academic Director of the NEAT Materials PhD Programme. Mike has lectured extensively in UK, Europe, US, Latin America, Pakistan, India, Australia and New Zealand. He has received significant research funding both from National sources (SFI, EI), the EU and Multinational Industry (DuPont, National Power). In his spare time Mike follows Irish & Munster Rugby (although he will on occasion cheer on Leinster) and Cork Hurling. He enjoys classical music and escapist movies, and is an avid reader of history and popular science books.

Research Expertise

Description

Research interests lie in the areas of Physical, Materials, nano- and bio-electrochemistry and in Raw Materials. Current activity is focused on the investigation of the redox, charge storage and electrocatalytic properties of nanostructured metal oxyhydroxide thin films for use as electrodes in water electrolysis cells and electrochemical fuel cells. The development of metal oxide and polymeric electrode materials for use as amperometric chemical and biological sensors in tandem with the mathematical modelling of reaction and diffusion of analytes at sensor electrode surfaces is an ongoing research activity.

Projects

  • Title
    • Redox & catalytic properties of hydrated metal oxide electrodes for use in energy conversion & storage devices
  • Summary
    • In the present research programme the mechanism of hydrous oxide growth and the redox charging/discharging behaviour at a variety of noble (Pt, Rh, Ir) and non-noble metal (Fe, Co, Ni, Mn) hydrous oxides will be fully elucidated under well defined conditions using a range of in situ electrochemical (steady state and transient), nanogravimetric, spectroscopic and microscopic (scanning electrochemical and atomic force) in order to establish a coherent basis for preparation of defined materials with defined properties. The activity, kinetics and mechanism of the catalytically demanding dioxygen evolution and electroreduction reactions will then be probed and elucidated on the latter surfaces and at metal surfaces pre-coated with carbon nanotube meshes on which hydrous oxides are electrochemically grown. A detailed experimental basis to underpin a coherent predictive theory of electrocatalysis will therefore be established for the first time. This will result in a huge advance in the optimization of water electrolysis anode and PEM fuel cell cathode materials science and will bring the ideal of a sustainable electrochemistry based hydrogen economy closer to fruition.
