Dr. Vladimir Martis

After almost 10 years with company, we are sad to see the departure of SMS stalwart Dr. Vladimir Martis. Joining SMS in 2013, Vladimir immeidately made an impact, bringing his expertise on catalysts, zeolites, MOFs, polymers, freeze and spray dried materials, and composites to bear in the development of advanced in-situ experimental surface science techniques using molecules as probes. As the DVS Product Manager for Porous Materials and Vacuum Products, Vladimir pioneering groundbreaking new instruments, and constantly sought to innovate in design to bring better products to market. In his role he authored a range of peer-reviewed journals, presented at conferences around the world, and was a regular speaker on the SMS online event series.

We wish Vladimir the best of luck in all his future endeavours!
