Biography

Katrien Bernaerts graduated as a Licentiate (Master) in Chemistry from Ghent University (Belgium) in 2000. From 2000-2005 during her PhD in polymer chemistry in the group of Prof. Du Prez at Ghent University (Belgium) she performed on the synthesis and evaluation of stimuli (pH and temperature) responsive copolymer architectures by combination of different polymerization techniques. After PhD, she spent 7 years in industry, doing research in the field of coatings and fibers. Since 2012, she started as Assistant Professor Polymer Chemistry at Maastricht University. Her main research interest is the synthesis of renewable, functional (co)polymers with a variety of architectures via different chemistries and the study of their structure-property relationships in several fields of application e.g. stimuliresponsive polymers, organic coatings, fibers, organic membranes, engineering plastics and biomedical applications.
