Torben R. Jensen received a Ph.D. degree in materials chemistry at University of Southern Denmark, Odense in 1999. He was awarded a Steno research stipend (2002) and a Carlsberg research stipend form the Carlsberg Foundation in 2005, a doctor of science degree (D.Sc.) in 2014 and was awarded the Hydrogen Energy Award in Japan 2016. Torben became Professor of Inorganic Chemistry 2016 at Department of Chemistry and the interdisciplinary nanoscience center (iNANO) at Aarhus University. His research interests are focused on synthesis, structural, physical and chemical properties of new inorganic materials, mainly as ‘energy materials’ with utilizations for novel batteries or for solid state hydrogen storage. He is a frequent user of synchrotron X-ray and neutron radiation for materials characterization and has developed new sample environments for investigation of solid gas reactions (>266 publications, +8900 citations, and H=50).
