Piotr Mazurek, PhD – 8th EYEC Scientific Commission member

It’s time to announce the next member of the 8th EYEC Scientific Commission – Piotr Mazurek from Technical University of Denmark (DTU).

Piotr Mazurek studied chemical engineering at the West Pomeranian University of Technology (Poland) graduating with a Bachelor’s degree (one semester spent at the German Aerospace Center, Braunschweig, Germany) in 2011 and Master’s degree in 2012. He received a PhD degree in polymer science from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in 2016 for the study on the development of functional materials used as dielectric elastomer transducers (DET).

After the graduation he became an industrial postdoctoral researcher at Grundfos (Denmark) working on smart anti-corrosion materials. He was a visiting postdoctoral researcher at the McMaster University (Hamilton, Canada) where he investigated new strategies for preparation of silicone membranes with physically immobilized enzymes.

Currently he is a researcher at the Danish Polymer Centre, DTU where he works on smart elastomeric silicone membranes and foams used in DET, biomedical drug delivery and magnetochromatic systems.
