The 2023 Solomon Lecturer is Prof. Dr. Brigitte Voit, who will be touring Australia in late 2023.
Brigitte Voit received her PhD in Macromolecular Chemistry 1990 from University Bayreuth, Germany. After postdoctoral work in 1991/1992 at Eastman Kodak in Rochester, USA, she joined Technische Universität München. After habilitation in 1996, she was appointed 1997 full professor for “Organic Chemistry of Polymers“ at Technische Universität Dresden as well as head of the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry at the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research (IPF) Dresden. From 2002 to 2022 she was also Scientific Director of IPF. At TU Dresden she is member of the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) and the Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering (DIGS BB). She is active in the European Polymer Federation (president 2014/2015), member of acatech, and holder of the Staudinger Award.
Her scientific interest is in functional polymer architectures and responsive polymers for e.g. biomedicine, smart systems and organic electronics.
Details of Prof. Voit’s visit to Australia will be added to this site when finalised.
