A polymer lover!
As a highly trained, educated professional researcher in polymer science and technology who has around 6-year experience in the synthesis and characterization of a wide range of monomers and polymeric products, I have valuable experience and expertise in organic chemistry- and polymer chemistry-related projects. As a polymer scientist, I have excellent networking and communication skills and I am able to learn and grow fast.
To satisfy the aforementioned abilities/capabilities, as part of my roles at the Technical University of Darmstadt and the University of Melbourne, I gained significant experiences in working with different instruments including nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), size exclusion chromatography (SEC), matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-time of flight (MALDI-ToF), light scattering (LS), multiangle light scattering (MALS), dynamic light scattering (DLS), UV-Vis, FTIR, gas chromatography (GC), high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), imaging microscopy, etc. Furthermore, I have experience in the synthesis of different hydrophilic, hydrophilic, and amphiphilic polymers via the ATRP and RAFT polymerization techniques. I became an expert in the fabrication of ultra-high molecular weight (UHMW) polymers with excellent mechanical properties. Participating as a researcher in different projects at the University of Melbourne enables me to learn valuable skills in teamwork, with a track record of collaborations with many research groups in Japan, Australia, the UK, and France. I am totally familiar with different instruments and also different software for data analysis. As a dedicated, innovative, and flexible scientist who pays special attention to details, I am able to keep the time and budget of projects under control.
