Research Project: Micro-fabrication and Assessment of 4D Robotic Micro-tools Composed of Responsive Polymers
Supervisors: Larisa Florea (TCD), Alexander J. Thompson (ICL)

Yekaterina completed her Bachelor’s degree at University of Chemistry and Technology Prague and was working on the optimization of fluidised bed using silica particles. In 2019, she continued her journey with a fully funded scholarship in Erasmus Mundus Master in Membrane Engineering for Sustainable World (EM3E-4SW) program, which was held at three different European universities: University of Montpellier, University of Chemistry and Technology Prague and University of Zaragoza. For her final Master’s thesis, Yekaterina did a 6-month internship at Inocure company in Prague where she worked on the fabrication of electrospun membranes for carbon sorption. She is now working in Florea Lab group at TCD under the supervision of Dr. Larisa Florea. Her project is focused on the fabrication of complex microstructures composed of responsive polymers via two photon polymerization using femtosecond laser direct writing.

The CDT provided me with the tools to develop my career as a researcher and to participate in Outreach activities to broaden my skills. I really enjoyed my time as a student in the CDT and look forward to continuing collaborations with the research groups there.
