Ionically and electronically conducting polymers are key components in emerging electronic, sensing and energy applications. Understanding their structure and properties is important for designing new systems with higher performance and reduced cost. Our group develops these materials to advance a range of technologies from electrolyzers for green hydrogen generation to composite sensors for detecting a range of volatile chemicals. This presentation will focus on our group’s work on the development of biologically inspired artificial olfaction. In the area of artificial olfaction, we are developing chemically diverse sensor arrays and signal processing approaches with the goal of creating CMOS integrated circuits that would impart the one remaining sense to machines. In the area of sustainable hydrogen generation, we are developing PEM based electrolyzers capable of using earth abundant catalysts. The goal of this work is to lower the cost and enable the wider use of electrolyzers for green hydrogen generation.


Michael Freund is the Harry Shirreff Professor of Chemical Research and Director of the Clean Technologies Research Institute (CTRI) at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia Canada. He is currently cross appointed in the Departments of Physics, Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Chemical Engineering. Prior to joining the faculty at Dalhousie, he held a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Electronic Materials at the University of Manitoba, Canada and was Director of the Molecular Materials Research Center in the Beckman Institute at Caltech.

Michael’s research program focuses on electrochemical energy conversion and storage (including supercapacitors, green hydrogen generation, and artificial photosynthesis), organic-based electronics (memristors and polymer transistors), and chemical sensing (including machine olfaction). Michael has published over 115 articles with over 8,500 citations and has been issued 28 US and 15 international patents.

In addition to directing the CTRI, Michael currently leads an NSERC funded, graduate training program in energy sustainability (http://energy.dal.ca) involving 24 faculty and 30 trainees in diverse fields ranging from batteries and photovoltaics to social science and technoeconomics.
