Presentation title: Chemical and topological evolution of polymer biointerfaces
Dr. Edmondo M. Benetti graduated in chemistry at the University of Padova (Italy) in 2004 and carried out his PhD at the University of Twente (The Netherlands), working in the Department of Materials Science and Technology of Polymers (2009).
He joined the Department of Materials at ETH in 2009 as a PostDoc (ETH fellow) working in the group of Prof. Marcus Textor. Since 2014 he has been a Senior Scientist in the Laboratory for Surface Science and Technology (Swiss National Science Foundation “Ambizione” fellow). Here he coordinates the activities of the Polymer Surfaces Group, concentrating on controlled polymerization methods, and surface science. His research is particularly focusing on the modulation of the interfacial physicochemical properties of polymer assemblies, and on their dissection by advanced scanning probe methods and others surface analytics.
