Prof. Mikhail Zheludkevich
Prof. Mikhail Zheludkevich is currently Head of Department of Corrosion and Surface Technology at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG), Germany. He is also professor at University of Kiel. He holds PhD in Physical Chemistry from Belarusian State University and has been working for above 10 years as a post-doctoral researcher and then a group leader at University of Aveiro, Portugal, before joining HZG. His scientific interests are related to the active corrosion protection approaches for light metals and multi-material structures.

Dr. Carsten Blawert
Dr. Carsten Blawert is a Senior Researcher at Department of Corrosion and Surface Technology at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht. He has received his PhD in Material Science from TU Clausthal, Germany. After joining HZG at 2002 his scientific interests are focused on development of the new corrosion resistant Mg alloys and the novel surface treatments and coatings for their improved corrosion protection.
