Dr. Jonathan Yeow is a Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow working with Professor Molly Stevens in the Department of Materials at Imperial College London.

He completed his PhD in polymer chemistry at The University of New South Wales, Australia in 2017 under the supervision of Professor Cyrille Boyer. His PhD research centered on the development of visible light mediated photopolymerization techniques for the synthesis of self-assembled nanoparticles.

His current work focuses on the high throughput synthesis of polymer therapeutics and protein loaded polymersomes for applications in regenerative medicine.
