Physical Chemistry – the computational course for chemists

Radka is a researcher at Faculty of Science at Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice. She holds an MSc and PhD in Physical chemistry and BSc in Chemistry. Her current research interests focus the recent developments in biodegradable orthopedic metallic scaffolds. She is currently working on several projects which examine the corrosion and biological properties of sintered iron-based and zinc-based materials under the supervision of professor Oriňaková. Other research interests include electrochemistry, corrosion science, powder metallurgy, and metal-release activity. She has attended six student’s scientific conferences among 2013 and 2018 and received an award for best presentation in Chemistry section at Students Scientific Conference at Comenius University in Bratislava in 2017. Radka is teaching Physical Chemistry I. and II. course and supervising two bachelor students and mentoring three master students. From 2018 to 2021, she was a part of organizing committees of an annual conference New Trends in Chemistry, Research and Education organized by the Faculty of Science and NFA conference. She is a member of the Electrochemical Society and the European Society of Biomaterials. She published a highly-cited review paper entitled Recent advancements in Fe-based biomaterials for bone repair in the Journal of Material Science and other 16 publications as author or co-author.

  She was awarded UPJŠ Rector’s award for the scientific work of doctoral students in 2021, took part in the student chapter of The Electrochemical society as a    treasurer and was nominated as a Slovak student personality of a year in the Natural science and chemistry category.

During her studies, she was also awarded with
