Dr. Iryna Antonyshyn studied Chemistry at Ivan Franko National University of Lviv (Lviv, Ukraine) and received her diploma in 2006. In 2006–2011 the scientific work on the Ph.D. thesis “Interaction of gallium and antimony with transition (V, Mn) and rare-earth (Y, La, Ho) metals” under the supervision of Dr. Stepan Oryshchyn was carried out. During this period, she earned a DAAD scholarship and joined the group of Prof. Juri Grin in Max-Planck Institut für Chemische Physik fester Stoffe (Dresden, Germany) for 10 months (2008–2009). After a successful Ph.D. defense in 2011, she joined the same group as a postdoc and from 2019 Dr. Antonyshyn is group leader at MPI CPfS. The chemical properties of intermetallic compounds and their application in the field of heterogeneous catalysis and electrocatalysis are the main research interests of Dr. Antonyshyn.
