Tanja Junkers, Associate editor
Monash University, Australia
Professor Tanja Junkers studied chemistry and graduated with a PhD in physical chemistry from Göttingen University, Germany, in 2006 and subsequently worked at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, at the Centre for Advanced Macromolecular Design as research associate. In 2008 she moved to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany. In early 2010 she was appointed professor at Hasselt University, Belgium, where she founded the Polymer Reaction Design research group within the Institute for Materials Research. In January 2018 she moved back to Australia where she became full professor at Monash University in Melbourne, and since then continues activities there. She remains guest professor at Hasselt University and her group is currently active at both locations. Her main research interests are precision polymer synthesis, use of continuous flow chemistry approaches, light-induced chemistries, polymer surface modification and investigations on kinetics and mechanisms of radical reactions.
