Karolina Beton

Karolina Beton was born in Bełchatów, Poland, on the 15th of June 1996. She studies "Nanotechnology" at the Lodz University of Technology, where in February 2019 she hopes to defend the title of Bachelor of Science successfully. At the beginning of her career, she was involved in ATRP polymerization, co-creating a scientific project for over a year with the name "Synthesis of poly ((ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate) using various ATRP initiation techniques". Now, at her home university, she deals with Raman Spectroscopy, especially for breast cancer detection. In addition, she deals with the development of standardized and the most effective methods for tissue deparaffinization for this research in terms of technical and medical sciences. For this reason, her engineering work with the title "Comparison of various methods of deparaffinization and preparation of tumorous breast tissues on the quality of the results of Raman Spectroscopy measurements" will include research in this field.

She joined the ETE group in July 2018 as an Erasmus student to do her internship in University of Twente. Here, she is currently working on topic connected with creating molecular velcro systems and on the subject of "Hook-and-loop adhesion systems for elastomers".
