Postdoc; Dep. of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Applied Chemistry; Christian Müller Group

My main project here is “New Materials for Power Cable Insulations”. I received my Ph.D. degree in fiber and polymer science from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. I did two postdoctoral fellowship at KTH in collaboration with IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, Sweden and Center for Advanced Functional Nanorobots, UCT Prague, Czech Republic. My main research interests are broad and include polymer physics, synthesis of inorganic nanostructures, polymer nanocomposites, nanodielectrics, wastewater treatment, and nano/micromotors.

My three most important publications:
1.    "Highly Efficient Interfaces in Nanocomposites Based on Polyethylene and ZnO  Nano/Hierarchical Particles: A Novel Approach toward Ultralow Electrical Conductivity Insulations" Adv. Mater. 2016, 28 (39), 8651–8657.
2.    "ZnO/ZnO2/Pt Janus Micromotors Propulsion Mode Changes with Size and Interface Structure: Enhanced Nitroaromatic Explosives Degradation under Visible Light", ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces, 2018, 10 (49), 42688–42697.
3.    "Water-based synthesis and cleaning methods for high purity ZnO nanoparticles - comparing acetate, chloride, sulphate and nitrate zinc salt precursors" RSC Adv. 2014, 4 (67), 35568–35577.
