Profiles of Dr. Alexander Southan
Dr. Alexander Southan studied chemistry with a focus on macromolecular chemistry at the University of Marburg. During his diploma thesis in the group of Prof. Dr. med. Markus Motzkus dealt with the further development of multiplex CARS microscopy for the investigation of reactions in polymer matrices.
In 2014, Alexander Southan received his doctorate from the University of Stuttgart, Prof. Dr. med. Hirth led Institute of Interfacial Engineering and Plasma Technology IGVP (PhD supervisor: Prof. Dr. Günter Tovar). The title of his dissertation is "Functional Poly(ethylene glycol)-based Polymers for Polymer Network Formation by Side-product Free Reactions". Since 2014 he has been Team Leader of the team Functional Polymers and Hydrogels in the project house NanoBioMater.
