Tim Buscher

Graduate Student

Tim was born in Germany and obtained his bachelor's degree in chemistry from the University of Münster in 2011. During his bachelor studies under the guidance of Prof. Armido Studer he worked on new methods of site-specific modification and self-assembly of Zeolite L. Driven by his interest in interdisciplinary research and material science, Tim joined the Hawker group in August 2012 for four months.


Currently Tim develops small molecules and polymers that mimic enzymatic mechanisms. Furthermore he synthesizes functionalized polymers, which could serve as anti-fouling coatings for membranes and filters.
