Annemie Bogaerts is full professor at the Department of Chemistry, University of Antwerp, and head of the research group PLASMANT.
Her research activities comprise the study of plasma and plasma-surface interactions by means of computer modeling and experiments, for various applications, i.e., CO2 and N2 conversion into value-added chemicals and fuels, plasma medicine, microelectronics, nanotechnology and analytical chemistry.
The research on plasma-based CO2 conversion is one of the core activities of her group. It comprises experiments in various kinds of plasma reactors, with and without catalysts, as well as computer modeling, including modeling the plasma chemistry to understand the underlying reaction pathways, modeling various plasma reactor designs, and modeling plasma-catalyst interactions at different levels. She has an ERC Synergy Grant on plasma catalysis for electrification of chemical reactions (conversion of CO2, N2 and CH4).
