During my MSc diploma thesis and my PhD thesis, I have prepared molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs, synthetic antibodies) for separation and as direct replacement of antibodies in bioassays and biosensors under Prof. S. A. Piletsky (Cranfield University, UK). I also synthesised monomers and the corresponding conducting polymers for surface modification of the working electrode of biosensors.
During my current postdoctoral tenure I synthesised monomers derived from renewable sources and the corresponding biodegradable, chiral, and sustainable polymers via ring-opening living polymerisation under Prof. Matthew Davidson (University of Bath, UK). Additionally, I prepare organometallic compounds and apply them in the synthesis of polymers as catalysts and follow the reaction kinetics.
