Her research focuses on the development of crosslinkable (bio)polymers (i.e. gelatin, polysaccharides, synthetic polyethers, polyesters, etc.) and their processing capabilities (in the presence of cells) using 3D printing techniques to develop scaffolds for tissue engineering.

In this project, Sandra will coordinate tasks related to (bio)polymer development, characterization and processing using 3D printing and electrospinning in order to mimic the artificial fish intestine.
