ESR 1

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

Lorena INFANTE TEIXEIRA

ESR 2

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.

Justine ELGOYHEN

ESR 3

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.

Brahim BESSIF

Brahim BESSIF

ESR 4

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.

Suneel LANKA

Suneel LANKA

ESR 5

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.

Viola HOBIGER

Viola HOBIGER

ESR 6

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.

Eirini SKOUFA

Eirini SKOUFA

ESR 7

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.

Narmin SUVARLY

Narmin SUVARLY

ESR 8

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.
