Synthesis of well-defined thermoresponsive polymer nanostructures

Sung-Po (Rafael) Chen completed his Bachelor of Biotechnology (BBiot + Honours, Class I) majoring in nanotechnology in 2017 at The University of Queensland (UQ, Australia). He continued to obtain his PhD in 2022 at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) under the supervision of Prof. Michael Monteiro specializing in polymer chemistry.
