Merima Hasani

Associate Professor at Chalmers, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Chemical Technology, Chemical Reaction Engineering

Merima Hasani defended her doctoral thesis "Chemical modification of cellulose: New possibilities of some classical routes" in October 2010 within the Fibre Technology Center, Avancell (a collaboration between Chalmers University of Technology, Södra Cell, Tetra Pak and Korsnäs). Her postdoctoral project explores new methods for chemical modification of cellulose in aqueous systems.
