Personal profile

Biography

Tanja Junkers graduated with a PhD degree in physical chemistry from Goettigen University in Germany in 2006, having worked on the determination of kinetic rate coefficients for radical reactions during polymerizations. In the two years that followed, she was research associate at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, shifting her focus more and more towards synthetic polymer chemistry. Between 2008 and beginning of 2010 she was a senior research scientist at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany in the group of Prof. Christopher Barner-Kowollik. Early 2010 she was then appointed professor at Hasselt University in Belgium, where she founded the Polymer Reaction Design group. January 2018 she joined Monash University as full professor, focusing on her work on continuous flow polymerizations, (nano)particle formation and design of complex precision polymers. For the time being, she keeps a guest professor role at Hasselt University until her last PhD students there will have graduated.
