Prof. Thomas Maskow was from Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ Permoserstr, Germany. He was invited to deliver the talk, ‘How to measure the metabolic energy conversion of non-chemical energy sources’, on Apr. 15th, 2019. It was hosted by Dr. Xiao-le Han.
Prof. Thomas Maskow is an outstanding expert in the field of Bio-thermodynamics. He presented the fact where the heat is coming from. Subsequently, Prof. Thomas Maskow also introduced how to measure heat, such as catalytic reactions in chemical reactions and biosynthetic reactions, etc., as well as the theory related to the calculation of heat. Thomas's report was humorous, profound and simple, which brings new inspiration to our scientific research ideas and new ideas to the intersection of our scientific research.
Prof. Thomas Maskow is the Chairman of the International Society for Biological Calorimetry (ISBC). He isthe head of the research group Eco-thermodynamics/Bio-calorimetry. He has published 78 articles in scientific (peer reviewed) journals, including Energy & Environmental Science, Nanoscale, Environmental Science: Nano and other authoritative academic journals and published 8 books and book chapters. He is also the member of the Editorial Board of Engineering in Life Sciences; Frontiers in Microbiology; Energy, Sustainability and Society; Journal of Bioenergetics. In 2018, he won Lavoisier Medal award by the International Society for Biological Calorimetry.
