Marc Schaepertoens joined the Livingston Group as a PhD student in October 2012 with a primary focus on the iterative synthesis of monodisperse polymers. Marc is interested in applying the potentially very scalable, mild and green toolset of organic solvent nanofiltration (OSN) to the key separation challenges posed by iterative synthesis.
On a process level, Marc looks at the behaviour of cascades to better the single stage separation performance of the membranes by utilising multi stage configurations. His preferred environment is MATLAB.
