Ifan Stephens is the Leader of the Electrocatalysis Group at the Center for Individual Nanoparticle Functionality (CINF). At present, he also holds the role of Peabody Visiting Associate Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Ifan obtained his PhD from the University of Cambridge. He was first employed at CINF at DTU in 2008 as a postdoctoral researcher. From 2011 to 2015 he was Assistant Professor, and as of March 2015, he has held the position of Asssociate Professor.
His research is concerned with the use of electrocatalysis for fuel cells and sustainable fuel production. He is particularly interested in the interplay between electrochemical experiments, first principles calculations and surface science methods in the search for new catalyst materials. His experiments encompass nanoparticles, bulk polycrystalline surfaces and single crystals.
