Doctoral Candidate

Yunfei Guo


Yunfei Guo is a PhD researcher in the Polymer Performance Materials group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). As she had been working on polyurethanes for three years before, she wanted to continue her research on improving the chemical, physical and mechanical properties of polyurethane materials. Yunfei’s research focuses on isocyanurates and imides structures and investigates the reaction mechanism. She introduces these chemical structures in polyurethane materials and studies their properties via various techniques.


Yunfei got her B.Eng. in East China University of Science and Technology in 2013 majoring high molecular material and engineering. Then she obtained her M.Sc. degree in a joint Polymer Science program held by Freie Universität Berlin, Humblodt Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin and Universität Potsdam in Germany. During  her master, she went to Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) for internship about thermoresponsive core-shell nanoparticles and finished her master thesis there with the topic “Non-ionic Hydrogels with Positive Thermoresponsivity in Water and Electrolyte Solution”. After graduation in 2015, Yunfei joined BASF advanced chemicals co. ltd in Shanghai as an associate chemist working on polyurethane for three years. Later on she started her PhD in March 2019 in Polymer Performance Materials (SPP) group under the supervision of Prof. Željko Tomović and Prof. Rint Sijbesma.
