Born: 1970

Interests: cellulose, polysaccharides, enzymatic degradation

- achievement of different cellulose derivatives with the view to establish the reactivity of cellulose allomorphs;
- to obtain hydrogels with medical applications, from cellulose allomorphs (or theirs derivatives) with different polysaccharides (or proteins).
