Kristof Molnar obtained his M.Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering from The Budapest University of Technology, Hungary. Then he obtained his Ph.D. in Theoretical and Translational Medicine from Semmelweis University (Medical), Hungary. He joined the Puskas group in August 2019 as a research associate.
His background is biomaterials, biomedical application of polymers, hydrogels and nanotechnology (electrospinning). His current work involves sustainable and green polymer synthesis and ring polymers.
