A Focus on our PhD Students – Magdalena Ripoll

My work is now focused on combining the development of new hybrid materials for bacterial immobilization with the genetic modification of Gluconobacter strains to obtain novel biocatalysts for glycerol valorization. By combining alginate gels with clays and silica nanoparticles, we...

A Focus on our PhD Students – Mayara Carla Uvida (winner of the Inaugural Renata Reisfeld Fellowship for Women in Sol-Gel Science and Technology

Looking at the path I have taken so far, I’m delighted to have been awarded the inaugural Renata Reisfeld Fellowship by the International Sol-Gel Society, which celebrates the life and career of a pioneer female scientist in the sol-gel field.

A Focus on our PhD Students – Yosuke Hara

The first research topic given to me by Professor Nakanishi was a joint research theme on tungsten carbide with a company.

Andrius Pakalniškis

My first introduction to science happened when I joined the group of Professor Aivaras Kareiva with Professor Ramūnas Skaudžius as my supervisor during the middle of my second year.

A Focus on our PhD Students – Efrat Shukrun-Farrell

In my first project, I have developed 3D printable sol-gel-based printing compositions, which enabled the fabrication of 3D objects with unique properties.

A Focus on our PhD Students -Ann Kathrin Koopmann

I had the chance to expand my knowledge in nanomaterials by participating in a small research project concerning amino-silane functionalised maghemite nanoparticles.

A Focus on our PhD Students – Lorne S. Joseph

Presently, my thesis focuses on the Investigation of High Proton Conductivity Materials at Modest Temperatures. The motivation for this work centers on the synthesis of fast-proton conducting melting gels using the sol-gel process that exhibit good water retention, high thermal...

A Focus on our PhD Students – Andrea Montero-Oleas

I designed an aptamer-based biosensor for the quantification of proteins. Later I received my master degree in Experimental Biomedicine at the University of Castilla la Mancha in Spain

A Focus on our PhD Students – (now Dr) Nir Ganonyan

I am currently in the final submission stages of my PhD thesis, and looking back on the path I have chosen I am very happy to have entered the realm of sol gel materials.

A Focus on our PhD Students – Svenja Pohl

The topic of my thesis is again melting gels. These interesting compounds are organic-inorganic hybrid materials prepared from di- and trialkoxysilanes via a sol-gel process.
