Hans Heuts studied chemical engineering at the TU/e and graduated cum laude in 1992.  He obtained his PhD from the University of Sydney in 1997 where he had worked under supervision of Bob Gilbert (USyd) and Leo Radom (ANU).  From 1997 to 1999 he worked as a post-doctoral research fellow in Tom Davis' group at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) on the controlled polymerization of acrylic monomers.  After a 15-month industrial stint with General Electric Plastics, where he worked as a process development engineer for polycarbonate, he returned to UNSW as a senior lecturer of polymer chemistry in the Centre for Advanced Macromolecular Design.  In 2003 he moved to the University of Murcia in Spain as a Ramón y Cajál research fellow, before coming to Eindhoven by the end of 2005.  Here he started as an assistant professor in controlled radical polymerization and functional polymer colloids within the polymer chemistry group; mid 2014 he moved to Rint Sijbesma's supramolecular polymer chemistry group.  His research interests include (controlled) radical polymerization in homogeneous and heterogeneous systems, functional polymer colloids, polymeric surfactants, antimicrobial polymers, polymer networks and polymer reaction engineering.
