Prof Cyrille Boyer

Professor

Cyrille heads the Boyer lab at UNSW and is also co-director of the Australian Centre for Nanomedcine and a member of the Centre for Advanced Macromolecular Design. He has received numerous awards for his work in polymerisation, including  UNSW Research Excellence Award, Prime Minister Prize for Science (Malcolm MacIntosh Prize) and  ACS Biomacromolecules/Macromolecules Young Investigator Award. Cyrille’s research interests cover the use of photoredox catalysts to perform living radical polymerisation, hybrid organic–inorganic nanoparticles for imaging, nanomedicine and energy storage. Cyrille has published over 250 research articles, including eight patents, which have gathered over 11000 citations.

Dr Ka Wai Fan

Research Associate

Ka Wai is a research associate with strong interest in industry topics. He is currently developing fire retardant system for polymer composite used in real-life products. Prior to this role, Ka Wai has built his research experience from topics that focus on the use of aqueous chemistry. He is particularly interested in the application of polydopamine and its analogues in functional coating and nanocapsule fabrication, as well as silica-based microencapsulation technology.
