Honoring the great – Michael Faraday

Michael Faraday was an English scientist who was born in 1791 in Newington Butts and died in 1867 in Hampton Court, Middlesex. He conducted research in the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. His most important discoveries include the principles underlying electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism, and electrolysis.

Growing up in humble circumstances and trained as a bookbinder, Faraday, who was enthusiastic about natural research, found employment as Humphry Davy’s laboratory assistant at the Royal Institution, which became his most important place of work. In the Royal Institution’s laboratory he conducted his pioneering electromagnetic experiments, and in its lecture hall he helped to spread new scientific knowledge with his Christmas lectures. In 1833, Faraday was appointed the first Fullerian Professor of Chemistry.
