The research interest of our group is the development of new concepts in the field of:

1) Polymer-based nanocomposites for application in materials science (Focus: Polymer Chemistry, Nanoparticle Synthesis and Materials Science).

We are especially interested in understanding the phase transition behaviour of Upper Critical Solution Temperature (UCST)-type polymers presenting a thermoresponsive behaviour in water such as poly(acrylamide-co-acrylonitrile):

... and designing novel polymers presenting an UCST-type behaviour in water / alcohol mixture:

2) Dendrons-based macromolecular and supramolecular architectures for biomedical applications (Focus: Organic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry).
