Mária Minichová

I am from Slovakia and study the first year of the master programme in Chemical Engineering at UCT Prague. During my bachelor studies I started to collaborate with the research group of Prof. Juraj Kosek focusing on formation and characterization of microcellular polymeric foams and thus the improvement of their insulating properties. During my bachelor studies I also experienced an exchange program at DTU in Denmark. This positive experience enhanced my interest in studying abroad.

I have started to work in ASM group this semester and I will stay for 5 months. I will focus on an interfacial gelation of two immiscible phases, specifically a water and an oil, in order to avoid a spilling of the oil from tanker during the oil crack-up.
