I am a strongly motivated Ph.D. student interested in polymers for biomaterials from the point of tissue engineering applications and also drug delivery systems. My scientific curiosity in this field has started with my bachelor’s thesis and it has continued with deep investigations through my master’s degree. And I am here at the Laboratory of Polymers and Biomaterials where I can combine the knowledge I have learned and showcase my skills thanks to my previous experience.
