Annemie Bogaerts

Annemie BogaertsAnnemie Bogaerts was born in Wilrijk, Belgium, on October 25, 1971. She received her PhD degree in Chemistry from the University of Antwerp (1996). She is full professor at the University of Antwerp, Belgium, and head of the research group PLASMANT.
The group performs research on modeling of plasmas and plasma-surface interactions, for various applications, mainly environmental applications (CO2 conversion into value-added chemicals and fuels), medical applications (mainly for cancer treatment), nanotechnology and microelectronics, and analytical chemistry. Besides, the group also performs experimental research on plasma-based CO2 conversion and plasma treatment of cancer cells. She has written around 420 peer-reviewed publications since 1995, and she has more than 12,000 citations, resulting in a h-index of 54. She has presented almost 170 invited talks at international conferences (since 1998) and 63 invited seminar talks (since 1995).
