Mark Bernardes – UCL Chemical Engineering


Our department provides an elective study direction to graduate with a MEng in Chemical Engineering with Chemistry, offering students unique opportunities in fields related to Molecular Engineering and Nanotechnology with applications to Energy, Healthcare and the Environment (among others). I will provide some insights into our teaching in these fields and showcase relevance in current topics of research.

Presented by:

Dr Stefan Guldin, Associate professor in Chemical Engineering and head of the Adaptive and Responsive Nanomaterials (AdReNa) group at University College London.

Please note, we will do our best to answer questions about the current Covid-19 situation, and what effects this may have going forward. Do visit UCL's main coronavirus webpage for the latest updates (see section 8 for prospective students).

Stefan Guldin
Dr Stefan Guldin is an associate professor in Chemical Engineering and head of the Adaptive and Responsive Nanomaterials (AdReNa) group. He is the programme lead for the IEP Minor in Applied Chemistry & Molecular Engineering and teaches From Molecules to Molecular Engineering (CENG0022) and Advanced Materials Processes & Nanotechnology (CENG0030). Dr Guldin studied Physics at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (2003-05) and the Technical University of Munich (2005-08) and graduated with a PhD from the University of Cambridge. He then carried out postdoctoral research as a scholar of the German Academy of Sciences at EPFL before taking up his current position in 2015. His research interests include the study of material formation on the nanoscale by molecular self-assembly, creation of adaptive and responsive materials architectures and translation into real-world applications, ranging from biomedical diagnostics to electrochemical devices and optical coatings.
