Check out our interview with Quentin below:
1. How do you feel about Polymer Chemistry as a place to publish research on this topic?
Polymer Chemistry is a great venue for synthetic studies focused on new polymeric architectures, as well as for reports of polymerizations relying on catalytic processes. It is a great place for the polymer community to share impactful results.
2. What aspect of your work are you most excited about at the moment and what do you find most challenging about your research?
I am very excited about my group’s ability to precisely synthesize polymers with high structural complexity and tailored properties. Our research requires the often-difficult characterization of novel polymers, as well as the investigation of intricate reaction mechanisms, but that challenge is exciting and motivates us to push the boundaries of the field.
