Dr. Alla Synytska (GoogleScholar) is a group leader at the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden and Habiltandin at the Dresden University of Technology (TU Dresden). The Synytska group has strong areas of expertise and competences in physical chemistry of polymers, colloidal and soft materials, which includes controlled modification of interfaces, physical-chemical evaluation of their properties and fundamental understanding of correlations between macroscopic interfacial phenomena and their molecular origins. The obtained fundamental knowledge is transposed to the development of strategies for rational design of polymeric- and hybrid materials with controlled wetting and adhesion properties based on stimuli-responsive polymers and colloids. Our innovative research program embraces both basic- and application-oriented projects.
