Marco Caliari completed his Bachelor studies at the University of Bologna in 2019 with a thesis on the development of biobased, super amphiphilic vitrimers carried out in an Erasmus framework at the University of Groningen. Interested in knowing more about sustainability and polymers, he enrolled at KU Leuven. After completing an Internship at the Adolphe Merkle Institute in Fribourg (CH) in the field of supramolecular polymers, he graduated in 2021 with a thesis exploring the synthesis of novel hyperbranched polymers with applications in catalysis. He is now MSCA Fellow in the NIPU-EJD framework.


Currently, the research is focusing on the synthesis of monomeric species from CO2 and photobases in order to develop novel 3D-printable polyurethanes.
