Associate Professor in Smart and Sustainable Polymeric Products


Design, synthesis and study of new smart and sustainable polymeric products for the modern chemical industry.

Main interests:
- synthesis of polymers via ATRP and RAFT (controlled radical polymerization)
- solution properties and self-assembly of amphiphilic polymers
- polymer colloids
- responsive polymers/composites for soft robotics and smart sensing applications
- chemical enhanced oil recovery
- smart polymers for controlled release (agrochemical, drug delivery)
- bio-based building blocks for sustainable and biodegradable materials
- thermally reversible polymers based on Diels-Alder chemistry
