Professor Mats Andersson, renowned Swedish researcher in polymer chemistry, will join the University of South Australia’s Ian Wark Research Institute early next year under a South Australian Research Fellowship. Recently ranked one of the world’s top 50 scientists in materials chemistry, Andersson focuses his research on the development of new materials for energy capture, specifically in photo voltaics and the use of printing-type materials for polymer electronics, as well as the development of hybrid materials. He has also held the position of professor of polymer chemistry at Chalmers University of Technology, where he completed his PhD in 1995 before moving to the University of California to complete postdoctoral research in 1996. Upon his return to Chalmers, he led the department of chemical and biological engineering, supervising more than 25 PhD and postdoctoral students and developing research and associated publications. At UniSA, he is expected to contribute to South Australia’s capacity to develop world-class innovation in sustainable energy systems and minerals technologies.
