About me

I have a background in polymer synthesis. My research interests  focus today on tissue engineering and the translational, interdisciplinary field of material science and biology. This is an area which requires an enhanced understanding of polymer synthesis, physico-chemical characteristics, characterization and structure-property relationships at all levels.

A general aim for the research is to design and fabricate three-dimensional scaffolds which induce successful tissue regeneration in a controlled way through, for example, an active surface or by controlled release of growth factors.
