Our Research

Our group is working on four different topics in synthetic polymer science:

  1. Hydrophilic polymers for self-assembly and phase separations
  2. Polymer/Metal-organic framework hybrid materials
  3. Carbon Nitride in polymer chemistry
  4. Lignin-based polymer materials

We mainly work with controlled radical polymerization techniques as well as modular ligation reactions and photochemistry for the development of novel materials.

The Group

We are a multi-national team of chemists and materials scientists but we are always looking for skilled and motivated coworkers.

Find more info on current and former group members, the PI as well as how to join here.


Here are some examples of our work:
