Ievgen Pylypchuk

Ievgen Pylypchuk was born in western Ukraine in 1987. In 2009 he graduated from the chemical faculty of Kyiv National University with a master’s in polymer chemistry. He received his Ph.D. in physics and chemistry of surface in 2013 at Chuiko Institute of Surface Chemistry NAS of Ukraine, where he spent another 2 years as a junior researcher. During 2015-2017 he conducted his research in cooperation with UMCS (Lublin, Poland) and Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry (Krakow, Poland).

From 2017 to 2019 he worked at SLU-Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (Uppsala, Sweden) as a postdoctoral researcher in a project “Magnetic nano adsorbents for complex water purification”. From June 2019 to April 2021, he was doing another postdoc at KTH-Royal Institute of Technology on lignin nanoparticles and understanding of lignin structure-properties relationship. Currently, he is working as a Researcher at Stockholm University under the guidance of Prof. Mika Sipponen in the sustainable material chemistry group (SUSMATCHEM).

Research interests – lignin, lignin nanoparticles, magnetic nanomaterials, surface chemistry.
