Study of the structure-properties relationship of polymeric materials using coupled techniques

Abstract : The main focus of my research is the study of the structure-property relationships in the soft matter area in different medium such as bulk, solution as well as thin films. Particularly, I have developed my scientific in-house research activity, conducting scattering experiments both in transmission and grazing angle mode, in combination with several spectroscopies and mechanical techniques in the polymeric field such as polymer crystallization, self-assembled supramolecular polymers, advanced functional polymeric systems and metal-organic hybrid systems. As a researcher working on a leading scientific infrastructure (ESRF), I have acquired an outstanding knowledge at the forefront of X-ray instrumentation and thus, I have benefited from close interaction with the most prominent research groups in materials science, specifically soft condensed matter, in the Netherlands and Europe. This has encouraged me to develop novel sample environments and performed cutting edge X-ray experiments in combination with several other leading techniques in a soft matter such as microscopy, calorimetry, spectroscopy, rheology. Currently, I have focused my research on the development and characterization of novel biosource block-copolymers with biocompatible blocks. Novel advanced biopolymers are ideal candidates with applications in vital areas of the biomedical or pharmaceutical field when coupled with drugs and key metallic nanoparticles.
