    Personal profile


    Dr. Eng. Aleksandra Baron-Wiecheć is an experienced and well established authority in the domain of material science and surface engineering with a robust scientific profile. She obtained her PhD from the Silesian University of Technology in Poland, then she conducted research at the University of Manchester (UK), in France at the Institut des NanoSciences de Paris, and in Portugal at the Instituto Superior Técnico. She has worked many years for the government regulatory body (UK Atomic Energy Authority) and for EUROFusion consortium. Since 2018 she is a professor and a leader of the Baron-Lab ( at Guangdong Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.  

    Aleksandra has made significant contributions into two main fields: the materials – plasma interactions in extreme conditions, and the surface engineering using isotopic tracing methods. Regarding the later topic, she pioneered isotopic tracing of oxygen and hydrogen isotopes for Ion Beam Analysis (IBA) combined with high resolution electron microscopy to study complex growth process of self-ordering nano-pores in oxide films formed by anodizing. Today her research centres around functionalization of metals surface, stable isotopes application in materials science, mass spectrometry and corrosion at the nanoscale.  

    Aleksandra published research outcomes in over 90 peer review papers. She has been awarded twice the very prestigious European Fellowship Programme: Marie Skłodowska - Curie Actions in 2008 and 2020. She is a member of the EU Alumni initiative of the European Delegation in Beijing.
