My Research

My research aims to improve understanding of polymerization kinetics, which leads to the design of materials that are optimized for specific applications. By using statistical design of experiments, we can draw links between the synthesis steps, the polymer structure, and the application performance. This allows us to avoid trial-and-error approaches, making the most of the resources we have and finding the best polymeric material for each target application.
