The Mommer Research Group is a newly founded research team headed by Dr. Stefan Mommer. We are a team of young individuals tackling scientific challenges in the area of (soft) polymer materials. Currently based in the Department of Mechanical & Process Engineering of ETH Zurich, we are hosted by the Macromolecular Engineering Laboratory (headed by Prof. Dr. Mark W. Tibbitt).
