Dr Fiona Hatton

Lecturer in Polymer Chemistry

Areas of expertise

Expertise: Polymer synthesis; polymer characterisation; particle characterisation; controlled radical polymerisation; biopolymers; hydrogels; nanoparticles; polymerisation-induced self-assembly; nanoprecipitation; and polymers for drug delivery


Fiona's research expertise lies in controlled polymer synthesis, whereby we can control the chemistry and architecture of the polymers for various biomedical applications.

Through this control we can design polymers to self-assemble, to form polymeric particles with tunable size, shape and surface properties to enable the development of hydrogels or nanoparticles for drug delivery.
