Prof. Dr. Greta Patzke

Greta R. Patzke studied Chemistry at the University of Hannover, and her Diploma Thesis covered solid state chemistry and magnetic materials.
In 1999, she received her PhD degree summa cum laude from the University of Hannover. Her work was supported by the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes, and she worked with Michael Binnewies on the synthesis, characterization and properties of mixed oxides by developing crystal growth methods via chemical transport reactions.
In the following, she moved to ETH Zürich and joined the group of Reinhard Nesper to work on her habilitation thesis. During these years, she developed a wide range of research interests including structural inorganic chemistry, nanomaterials synthesis and the systematic application and investigation of hydrothermal techniques. She received the Venia Legendi for Inorganic Chemistry from ETH Zürich in 2006.
Since 2007, Greta Patzke is working at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, where she started with a Förderungsprofessur of the Swiss National Science Foundation. In 2013, she was promoted to Associate Professor. Since May 2016, she is Full Professor in the Department of Chemistry (University of Zurich).
