About me 
    I am interested in the synthesis of molecular/colloidal systems for the formation of new materials via a bottom-up approach. I believe that combining synthetic polymer chemistry and physical chemistry will lead to development of engineered building blocks that provide the basis for new (colloidal) assemblies. The strong combination of chemistry and physics allows for fundamental understanding of self-assembly processes as well as the creation of new hybrid functional materials. For example, in my Ph.D. project I employed controlled radical polymerizations to tune interactions between colloidal particles for self-assembly purposes and developed scalable routes towards chemically reactive patchy colloids.
