John Severn completed his Ph.D. at the University of Sussex and joined the group of Prof. R. van Santen at the Eindhoven University of Technology as a postdoc, working on the immobilization of alpha-olefin polymerization catalysts and the use of silsesquioxanes as homogeneous models. Then he joined the Dutch Polymer Institute working on the immobilization of single-site alpha-olefin polymerization catalyst, and with Avantium Technologies B.V. developing high throughput experimentation techniques for polyolefin catalysis. Since 2005 he has been a researcher at Borealis Polymer Oy, Finland. John Chadwick received his Ph.D. from the University of Bristol, after which he ...More About John R. Severn
