Time flies! Our very first PhD candidate Lukas Wolzak started in 2017 at University of Amsterdam under supervision of prof. Moniek Tromp and prof. Joost Reek.

Lukas will defend his thesis on Tuesday July 5th. We are happy to share this news with you and want to put Lukas Wolzak in the spotlight!

During his research he has worked together with AkzoNobel and recently he joined their force as a Researcher Vehicle Refinishes.

The purpose of his research was to make the production process of polyesters, which are used as binders in paint, more sustainable.
