About Us

Jens Gaitzsch

Currently an Academic Starter and Senior Scientist at the Leibniz Institute for Polymer Research (IPF in Dresden). His current research interests are mainly in functional polyesters from radical ring opening polymerisation and functional hydrogels. However, some self-assembly continues to appear along the way. Jens is very active in science communications and appears on stage at Science Slams. Download CV.

Chen Jiao

Chen is a PhD student with a fellowship from the China Scholarship Council. His research is on responsive hydrogels and associated to the research training group “Hydrogel-Based Microsystems”.

Andrea Koball

Andrea is a PhD student within the research training group “Hydrogel-Based Microsystems” with the TU Dresden and working on hydrogels as a basis for microreactors in microfluidics. She is mainly supervised by Dr. Dietmar Appelhans.

Nikolai Liubimtsev

Nikolai is a PhD student within the research training group “Hydrogel-Based Microsystems” with the TU Dresden and working on hydrogels as sensor materials for microfluidic applications.

Julian Heinrich

Julian is a master student in the group and currently working on new monomers for RROP for responsive polyesters from this polymerisation.

Fabian Mehner

Fabian is a master student with a research focus on tuning RROP with new polymerisation methods
