About Bernard Leyh

Affiliation: University of Liège, Belgium

My research interests cover both molecular physical chemistry and chemical education for pre-service secondary school teachers. My research in molecular physical chemistry includes molecular reaction dynamics using mass spectrometry techniques, molecular spectroscopy of highly excited (Rydberg) molecular electronic states and the elucidation of self-assembled nanostructures using small-angle scattering techniques. This work has led to 80 papers in international refereed journals. In the field of chemistry didactics for secondary school education, we develop experimental approaches for efficient teaching and we analyse the development of modelling competences of students and pre-service teachers.
