BIC researcher Lidiya Kibis, PhD, has been awarded the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science National Fellowship

10 October 2017

On October 5, the jury of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science National Fellowship 2017 met to name the winners of the competition, ten young female scientists from different Russian cities. One of them is PhD Lidiya Kibis of Boreskov Institute of Catalysis.

In recent years the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science National Fellowships were given to the BIC researchers PhD Ekaterina Kozlova (2011), PhD Nataliya Maksimchuk (2013), PhD Olga Bulavchenko (2015), and PhD Olga Zalomaeva (2016).


Lidiya Kibis

The L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science National program is carried out in Russia since 2007 with participation of Russian Academy of Sciences, Russian Nqational Commission for UNESCO, UNESCO Moscow Office, and is a part of the international project L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science. The nominees of the annual national fellowship are the female scientists no older than 35, with a degree of candidate or doctor of science, working in the Russian scientific institutions and universities in the fields of physics, chemistry, medicine, or biology. The selection criteria for the fellowship are the research achievements, importance and practical use of their studies and the will to continue pursuing the scientific career in Russia.

The winners will be given their awards during a special ceremony to be held in Moscow on December 4, 2017.

The main scientific interest of Lidiya Kibis lies in the field of the fundamental research of heterogeneous catalysis: the study of the properties of catalysts based on noble metals as well as the mechanisms of their catalytic activity. The results of these basic research can be used further in the tailored synthesis of highly active and stable catalysts as well as for analysis of the possible cost reduction of the catalysts due to the substitution of the expensive active components with cheaper analogues.

“I am very pleased that my work received this support, even though it is dedicated most of all to the basic research, - says Lidiya. – Today more and more attention is paid to the applied tasks and developments. Nevertheless, the further development of technologies is impossible without conducting the fundamental studies, highly demanded by the catalytic community, which is confirmed by the high citation index of such works. It is not the first time when the young females from BIC win this fellowship, I am very happy that I was able to continue this “tradition”.

Lidiya graduated from Novosibirsk State University, Department of Natural Sciences, specializing in chemistry. She works in BIC since 2005 and in 2011 she successfully defended her PhD theses named “Photoelectron Spectroscopy study of the metal and oxidized nanoparticles of silver and palladium”. Lidiya has co-authored more than 50 works, including more than 30 papers in the highly ranked Russian and world journals.
