Area of Research Interests:
The main research focus of our young and energetic group is on functional polymer synthesis, surface chemistry, nanomaterials and materials science. Synthetically we are utilizing numerous modern polymerization techniques in combination with the  post-polymerization modification techniques to prepare polymer based advanced materials for emerging applications. With the development of a powerful synthetic toolbox, we are extending and pushing the current limits of polymer chemistry. Our work involves material design, molecular characterization and prototype device fabrication. 
Extensive research is done in the field of carbon capture and recycling, biodegradable polymers and multi-stimuli responsive polymer for biomedical applications.
Sounds interesting? Explore our research areas and get in touch with us.

For Prospective Students: We are constantly seeking for BSc and MSc students and highly motivated post-doc candidates who are interested in the interdisciplinary areas of polymer chemistry and materials science. Students interested are encouraged to apply. Please have a look at the "Open Position" link . Furthermore, we are offering positions for internships, wherein prospective students will work closely together with a group member.
