Background and activities

Sandra Rodríguez completed her Master degree in Polymer Science, a joint Master Program of the Free University Berlin, the Humboldt University Berlin, the Technical University Berlin and the University of Potsdam, in October 2014. The topic of her thesis was the synthesis of stimuli-responsive polymers for the fabrication of smart hydrogels for biosensing devices. She joined the Ugelstad Laboratory in May 2015 as a PhD candidate under the supervision of Associated Professor Kristofer Paso. Her project consists in the synthesis of amphiphilic block copolymers for CO2 capture and storage.
