Jacek Wychowaniec (2017-10-04)
I am an enthusiastic young researcher that seeks to contribute to everyday cutting-edge research and outreach activities. In September 2013 I joined Polymers & Peptide group (http://www.polymersandpeptides.co.uk/) to pursue a PhD focusing on designing nano-structured graphene-peptide hydrogels composites for biomedical and tissue engineering applications. In early 2016 I won a project award grant to a competition organised by the University of Manchester IP (UMIP) to scout for novel idea with exploitation potential, I started my own initiative (gelART), being interested in developing graphene-peptide hydrogel platform for artificial tissue growth.
I was awarded BSC in Mathematics and Physics with a first class honours degree from the Aberystwyth University in 2013. During my undergraduate studies, I worked on several experimental projects, such as the role of packing problems in a cereal grains, absorption-contrast scattering of thin film photovoltaic coatings performing x-ray scattering experiments at Diamond Light Source. I was a member of ASTeC team from STFC’s Daresbury laboratory working on the Transverse Energy Spread Spectrometer (TESS) as my final year project.
