Dr. Norbert Radacsi graduated in physics from the University of Debrecen in 2006. Then he volunteered to the Hungarian Defence Forces, where he served as a military pilot for 2 years.

In 2008 Dr. Radacsi went to The Netherlands to obtain his Ph.D. at the Delft University of Technology in chemical engineering. After defending his Ph.D. in 2012, he stayed as a postdoctoral research associate at Delft for almost 1 year.

Then Dr. Radacsi went to the USA to do a one-year postdoctoral research at Purdue University in industrial pharmacy.

The next station in his career was the California Institute of Technology, where he was developing a technology for large-scale nanostructured fuel cell electrode fabrication as a postdoctoral research associate.

After one year Dr. Radacsi was promoted to a staff research associate, and investigated solid acid fuel cells and nanostructured pharmaceuticals.

In 2016 Dr. Radacsi became a Lecturer (US equivalent: Assistant Professor) at The University of Edinburgh. His research interest is in developing new techiques for manufacturing nanomaterials, like 3D nanoprinting.
