I am Cuong Le from Vietnam, graduated from Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City with a degree of Organic Chemistry in 2007. After participating in chemical testing laboratory for 7 years, I started to study abroad and obtained Master of Engineering degree at Pukyong National University (Busan – South Korea) in 2017. Currently, I join in the Innovative Training Network (ITN) as a PhD candidate and focus my research on Thiol-Ene Miniemulsion Photopolymerisation at Institute of Mullhouse Materials (Mullhouse, France).
Lorena INFANTE TEIXEIRA
I am Lorena Infante Teixeira, Brazilian-Spanish former Erasmus student of “Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry” program at the University of Lille 1. For my master thesis, I worked at the Jagiellonian University of Krakow in the synsthesis and photochemical characterization of novel porphyrin-based photosensitizers for application in PhotoDynamic Therapy of cancer. Currently, I have joined the ITN ETN Photo-Emulsion project and I will be working with functional and reactive sulfur polymer latex within Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Germany.
I am Justine ELGOYHEN from France. I studied Physics and Chemistry at the University of Pau and Pays de l’Adour, in the south of France, and I then moved to Paris and graduated from the Sorbonne University with a Master Degree in Material Chemistry. During my studies, I spent time abroad, both in the United States of America and in Scotland: I studied at the University of Aberdeen as an Erasmus student, and worked with the Sumerlin Research Group at the University of Florida. I have joined the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network on Thiol-ene Miniemulsion Photopolymerisation at the POLYMAT center in San Sebastian. My project focuses on the synthesis of polysulfide latex with controlled architectures, to develop and characterize novel barrier films.
I am Brahim BESSIF from Morocco and I graduated with diploma of Master studies in Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies, Nanophysic track at the University of Grenoble Alpes (UGA) in France 2018, during my master thesis, I worked on In-Situ/Operando X-Ray Diffraction applied to Advanced Functional Films and Devices. My work as a PhD student of the PHOTO-EMULSION project will mostly be dedicated on controlling polymer architecture and crystallinity in University of Freiburg.
I am Suneel LANKA from Andhra Pradesh, India. I am graduated in Master of Science in Chemistry from NIT-Trichy, India in 2012. In addition, I have taken courses in Synthetic Chemistry and gained research experience in France (UCBL1) and the Czech Republic (Charles University), at which I held internships in both Catalysis and, Organic Chemistry. Furthermore, I recently worked as a Scientific Researcher in the field of Organic Chemistry at the Center of Molecular and Macromolecular studies in Lodz, Polish Acadamey of Sciences, Poland.
Currently, I am involved in the ITN ETN Photo-Emulsion project for 3D printing of porous polyesters by thiol/ene polymerizations of high internal phase emulsions with hierarchical topology for tissue engineering applications at the Institute of Applied Synthetic Chemistry, Technical University of Vienna, Austria. I am so happy to join this project to learn more about Photo-polymerization reactions and their application in biological studies.
I am Viola Hobiger from Austria and I have a Bachelors Degree in Food- and Biotechnology from the University of Natural Ressources and Life Sciences in Vienna. I started a Master’s Degree in Technical Chemistry at the Technical University of Vienna in 2016, but after a research internship in Organic Chemistry at Stockholm University, I decided to move to Sweden and to pursue there my Master’s Degree. I have obtained my Master’s degree in August 2018 from Stockholm University. while working for a company called Dyenamo (Production of organic dyes for dye-sensitized solar cells). My work as a PhD will mostly be performed in PolyOrgLab in Slovenia where I will adapt a templating method using an emulsion to induce macropores in the polymer bulk. This method will ultimately lead to polymers with macro pores which enable us to grow biological cells. I will also spend some of my time at the TU Vienna and in Glantreo (Ireland). This project is especially exciting for me because I will be able to use my education in Biotechnology as well as in Chemistry.
I am Eirini SKOUFA from Greece. I studied Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Ioannina in Greece, while I took the chance to carry out my two-month internship at the Dept. of Research and Development of Pharmathen S.A. (Development of complex generic products and advanced pharmaceutical technologies). After completing my engineering studies, I decided to strengthen my knowledge on polymer science by undertaking a master of Science in Chemistry and Technology of Materials as well as to work in quality control for nature S.A. (Production of advanced fertilizers and plant nutrition). My work as a PhD will mostly be held in Charles Sadron Institute in Strasbourg, France where I joined the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network on Thiol-ene Miniemulsion Photopolymerisation. During the project I will be able to contribute to the understanding of production of poly(tiol-ene) nanoparticles using a continuous-flow miniemulsion photopolymerization process.
I am Narmin SUVARLY from Azerbaijan, a small country in the Middle East. Graduated with the Master degree in the Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry European Master program. Enforcing the mobility requirement of the program, I studied at the Universitè Lille 1, Universität Leipzig and the University of Helsinki. I larned about the Marie-Skladowska ITN before my Master studies and hence I applied for the Thiol-ene Miniemulsion Photopolymerization program in the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology for pursuing my PhD. The topic was very captivating and I was very happy to recieve the offer. I hope, in the future I will have more opportunities to apply my knowledge to the world of science.
