Overview on Research
The focus of my research is the investigation of microgel-based coatings by Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation Monitoring (QCM-D). Real time characterization of microgel systems with increasing structural complexity would open the path for in depth, quantitative description of both inherent microgel properties like stimuli-triggered volume phase transition (VPT) and biologically and industrially relevant applications like uptake & release processes and click-reactions.
- Synthesis and characterization of responsive microgels in bulk and surface-bound systems
- Design and characterization of microgel-based functional coatings as re-usable platforms for reversible uptake and release applications
