Congratulations to Raman Hlushko for successfully defending his dissertation!
Dr. Hlushko earned his degree based on his work on synthetic antioxidant polymers. His dissertation details the synthesis, adsorption, and layer-by-layer assembly of the polyphenolic polymers.
During his doctoral studies, Raman was an author on 6 publications (2 under review; 3 first-author) and 1 patent, in addition to many oral and poster presentations. He also actively volunteered for outreach activities and served as an officer in WIMS.
