Dr Franck D’Agosto
Franck D’Agosto is CNRS research director at the University of Lyon in the group of Chemistry, Catalysis, Polymers and Processes (C2P2). He completed a PhD in Polymer Chemistry at the joined unit between CNRS and bioMérieux (University of Lyon, France) before working at the University of Sydney (Australia) as a postdoctoral fellow at the Key Center for Polymer Colloids. He received the Bronze CNRS Medal in 2006 and the 2010 award of the French Chemical Society – Polymer Division. His research interests focus on the control of polymer architectures by the use of different polymerization chemistries – such as catalytic and controlled free radical polymerizations – either performed in solution or in dispersed media.
