Tristan Calayan

M.Sc. Candidate

2nd year MSc Candidate at the Sacripante Research Group. In addition, my research project currently entails synthesizing renewable polyurethanes from non-food sources such as Rosin and Cardanol. Furthermore, I am interested in self-healing polymers, hydrogels for drug delivery system using the Schiff Base linkages. Finally, I’m working on making a novel renewable oxazoline utilizing Rosin and Cardanol as its sustainable backbone. When I’m not in the lab, I enjoy collecting various mementos such as vinyl records from the ’80s and some Polaroid pictures, painting Warhammer figurines, reading comics and manga (Saga and Pluto), cooking different cuisines (ask my lab mates 🙂 ).
