RENEWABILITY IS NOT ENOUGH: SUSTAINABLE SYNTHESIS OF BIOMASS-DERIVED MONOMER AND POLYMERS
About Prof. dr. Michael Meier
Michael Meier received his diploma degree (M.Sc.) in Chemistry in 2002 from the University of Regensburg (Germany) and his Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Ulrich S. Schubert from the Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands) in 2006. After stays as junior group leader in Emden and as junior professor at the University of Potsdam, Germany, he was appointed full professor at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in 2010. His research interests include the sustainable use and derivatization of renewable resources for polymer chemistry as well as the design of novel highly defined macromolecular architectures.
