Patrick de Jongh

Patrick obtained his Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc.) degree in Chemistry from the Avans University of Applied Science (Breda, The Netherlands) in 2011. This included industrial placements at DSM and Mercachem. He then moved to the Radboud University (Nijmegen, The Netherlands) to start his premaster and Master of Science (MSc.) in Chemistry degree, during which he carried out two placements. The first was under supervision of Prof. Jan van Hest (RU) on the development of polymersome nanoreactors, and the second at Monash University (Melbourne, Australia) under supervision of Prof. S├ębastien Perrier and Dr. Michael Whittaker on star polymers for drug delivery applications. He graduated with a MSc. in Chemistry in August 2014 (cum laude).

In October 2014 Patrick moved to the University of Warwick to start his PhD research in the group of Prof. David Haddleton, co-supervised by Dr. Kristian Kempe (Monash University). His work is sponsored by Unilever and the University of Warwick. His current research interests include polyesters and poly(ester amide)s by melt polycondensation using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and novel N-acylated poly(amino ester) materials made by spontaneous zwitterionic copolymerisation (SZWIP). As part of this work, he spend three months as a visiting PhD at Monash University, working with Dr. Angus Johnston.
