Dr. Piret Pikma
I was born and raised in Tartu, Estonia. I recieved my B.Sc. in Chemistry in 2009 and my M.Sc. in Physical and Electrochemistry in 2011 from University of Tartu. I defended my Ph.D. in 2015 under the supervision of prof. Enn Lust, in which I focused on studying the interfacial structure and adsorption of organic compounds at Cd(0001) and Sb(111) electrodes from ionic liquid and aqueous electrolytes.
I joined the Borguet Group in February 2016 as a post-doctoral fellow. My research is focused on understanding electrochemical reactions at the single molecule level as well as single molecule conductivity by applying Scanning Tunneling Microscopy Techniques (EC-STM).
