Assistant Professor Maksym Kovalenko, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich, and Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, Dübendorf, has received the Werner Prize of the Swiss Chemical Society (SCS). The award was presented during the Spring Meeting of the Swiss Chemical Society in Zurich on April 22, 2016.

The Werner Prize honors a Swiss scientist or scientist working in Switzerland under the age of 40 for outstanding independent chemical research. Professor Kovalenko receives the award for his innovative studies on inorganic nanostructures.

Maksym Kovalenko studied chemistry at Chernivtsi National University, Ukraine. He received his Ph.D. in nanoscience and nanotechnology from the Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria, in 2007. From 2008 to 2011, he performed postdoctoral research on colloidal nanostructures with Dmitri Talapin at the University of Chicago, IL, USA. Since 2011, Kovalenko has been Assistant Professor of Inorganic Functional Materials at ETH Zurich. He is also affiliated with the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology.

Professor Kovalenko's research is focused on inorganic nanocrystals, especially their controlled synthesis and their use as nanomaterials for energy conversion and energy storage.
