Paula Kishi Kuroishi
Paula graduated from the University of Campinas (Brazil) in 2012 with BSc in Chemistry. She did her MSc studies under the supervision of Prof. Luiz Carlos Dias at the same University, where she synthesised a polyol natural product through stereocontrolled aldol reactions. In March 2015, Paula started her PhD in the Dove group, focussing her research on synthesis of biodegradable polymers for self-assembly studies.
