Mikaela Börjesson

Visiting Researcher at Chalmers, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Applied Chemistry

Mikaela Börjesson is a post-doc working with Anna Ström at the division of Applied Polymer Technology. Mikaela received her PhD in Organic Chemistry 2016 within the topic of chemical modification of polysaccharides, after which her post-doctoral work has been focused on the physico-chemical properties of modified hemicelluloses with applications in food and packaging. In 2018, Mikaela received a research grant from Nordforsk which gave her the opportunity to go to France for 12 month. She is currently sharing her time between Chalmers and LLB (France) where she works with small angle scattering techniques of neutrons and X-ray on biopolymer samples.
