Dagmar R. D’hooge (°1983;  associate professor) focuses in his research on the design of polymerization and polymer processing techniques. The functional material design and related process intensification is performed up to the industrial scale, using advanced in-house developed multi-scale modeling tools in combination with experimental validation. He is currently coauthor of > 90 peer-reviewed full length research articles, 3 book chapters, 1 book, and 1 granted patent. He is a member of the subcommittee on “Modeling of Polymerization Kinetics and Processes” of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).

He was a postdoctoral researcher in the Matyjaszewski Polymer Group (Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA) in 2011 and in the Macromolecular Architectures (MacroArc) Research Team (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Karslruhe, Germany) in 2013. He is also a former postdoctoral researcher of the Fund for Scientific Research Flanders (FWO Vlaanderen). Since 2017 he is a visiting Associate Professor at Stanford University.

He is a (co-)lecturer for polymer engineering courses at the Faculty, covering e.g. polymer reaction engineering, physics and processing.
