Short biography:
Martina Havenith received the Dr. rer. nat. degree in Physics from Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms University Bonn in 1990, and the Habilitation in Experimental Physics in 1997. Since 1998 she is Professor of Physical Chemistry at the Ruhr University in Bochum. She is a member of the North Rhine- Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts and the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina. In her research, she has developed new laser technologies to explore fundamental questions in chemistry. She has pioneered THz spectroscopy as a new tool to probe collective hydration dynamics of biomolecules. This has led to new insights into the role of water for biological function. She has published more than 150 research papers and has given more than 200 invited lectures. She has received numerous prizes acknowledging her work such as the Heisenberg Grant, the Bennigsen Foerder Prize, the Human Frontier Science Award, the Innovation Prize and the Sophie La Roche-Prize. The Women Professor Forum of Ruhr University Bochum received the Lore- Agnes-Prize in 2017. She is founder and coordinator of the DFG funded Cluster of Excellence RESOLV and a center of molecular spectroscopy and simulation of solvent controlled processes (ZEMOS) at the Ruhr University Bochum. She is advancing the field solvation science which aims to provide a unifying framework for understanding and predicting solvent processes.
