Tessa Loman

In 2019, Tessa received her BSc. degree at Eindhoven University of Technology after a final bachelor’s project on bolaamphiphiles for hydrogel formation in the group of prof. dr. Rint Sijbesma. Subsequently, she visited the group of prof. Craig Hawker at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where she studied the self-assembly behavior of block-copolymers in bulk conditions. In 2021, she joined the group of prof. dr. ir. Anja Palmans to conduct her graduation project on rhodium-catalyzed carbene reactions in amphiphilic polymeric nanoparticles in complex media. Afterwards, she went to Paris to perform my internship at DNA Script, where she worked on enzymatic DNA synthesis. Currently, Tessa is a PhD student under the guidance of prof. Anja Palmans and prof. Patricia Dankers. Her research focusses on the development of stimuli responsive single-chain polymeric nanoparticles to probe cell interactions.
