Dr Thiago Guimaraes is a Post-Doctoral researcher at Organic Polymer Chemistry Laboratory (LCPO) in Bordeaux, France. He received his chemical engineering degree in 2013 from University of Sao Paulo (USP, Brazil) and he obtained his Ph.D. in 2017 from University of Lyon in France under the supervision of Dr E. Bourgeat-Lami and Dr M. Lansalot. In 2018, he moved to Sydney, Australia, to join Prof Zetterlund’s team at University of New South Wales (UNSW) as Research Associate. In august 2021, he joined Prof Barner-Kowollik’s group as Research Associate at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane (Australia) working on the preparation of light-responsive polymer materials. Since February 2023, he joined the Team 4 of LCPO as post-doctoral researcher to develop nanoparticles for H2 generation via photocatalysis. This joint project will be developed in a collaboration of LCPO (Dr E. Cloutet) with ICMCB (Prof Jean-Louis Bobet). Dr Guimaraes has received 4 scientific awards, he had over 40 oral/poster communications presented in conferences, and he has co-authored 21 peer-reviewed papers. His current research interests include the development of sophisticated polymer particles via polymerization in dispersed systems, light-responsive materials, inorganic/polymer nanocomposites, polymerization kinetics and advanced functional materials.
