Welcome to Dr. Jerkiewicz's Group


Welcome to Dr. Jerkiewicz's Group

We study phenomena driven by the application of an external electric field that occur at the electrode surface (single-crystal and polycrystalline surfaces) and within the electrode's 3D matrix (micro- and nano-structured materials).

Kinetics and mechanisms of electrochemical processes depend not only on the nature of the reagent to be transformed or the product to be generated, but also on the electrode's chemical composition, physical properties and atomic-level structure.

Electrochemical reactions can change the electrode's:
(i) chemical composition;
(ii) 2D and 3D structure;
(iii) electronic, magnetic, mechanical and optical properties; and
(iv) other characteristics.
>> Surface and materials electrochemistry, molecular-level corrosion science

We study the mechanisms and kinetics of electrochemical reactions (e.g. electrolytic H2 and O2 generation, ethanol electro-oxidation, eletrocatalytic hydrogenation of achiral and prochiral unsaturated organic compounds) at the atomic/molecular level.
>> Molecular electrocatalysis


We are proud to announce that our colleague Ram P. Lamsal has joined Perkin Elmer Canada as a postdoctoral fellow (MITACS) and works in the ICPMS R&D Division. Congratulations, Dr. Lamsal!

We are proud to announce that Sadaf Tahmasebi has officially received her PhD degree from Queen's University on May 2018. Congratulations, Dr. Tahmasebi!


Dr. Gregory Jerkiewicz was awarded the title of Professor of Chemical Sciences for life by Andrzej Duda, President of the Republic of Poland. The ceremony, which was also attended by Dr. Nicholas Mosey, Associate Dean (Research), took place at the Presidential Palace in Warsaw on April 25, 2018.
