Dr Izabela Jurewicz
EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellow
I received my PhD in Physics in May 2009 from the University of Surrey. My dissertation was entitled “Self Organization of Highly Structured Carbon-Nanotube-Polymer Composites”. Preceding this, I obtained a MSc in Materials Engineering (five years course with the emphasis put on Functional Materials) from Szczecin University of Technology (Poland) in 2005. The final year of my MSc course I spent at the Polymer Composite Group at the Technical University in Hamburg-Harburg (Germany) where I carried out research work for my MSc thesis.
Immediately following my PhD graduation I accepted a Research Assistant position at the University of Surrey investigating the development of latex-based transparent electrode material coatings as potential replacements for Indium-Tin-Oxide (ITO). In March 2011 I became a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working on developing highly conductive silver nanowire thin films for touch screen applications.
I have recently been awarded an EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellowship. This fellowship will be focused on the development of carbon nanotube based textiles for energy storage applications.
