Pauline Tenblad was born in Gothenburg, Sweden 1995. She obtained both her B.Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering with Engineering Physics and her M.Sc degree in Innovative and Sustainable Chemical Engineering in the same city at Chalmers University of Technology. In between her bachelor and master Pauline did a research internship in the research team of Prof. Dr. Matthias Karg at the Physical Chemistry Department at Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf, Germany. The project was dedicated to the decoration of gold nanoparticles by responsive block copolymers. Her M.Sc. thesis was carried out at Wetsus, European centre of excellence for sustainable water technology in Leeuwarden, Netherlands. The thesis included modelling of ionic shortcut currents in segmented electrode ED and RED configurations using python to simulate the system as an electronic circuit. After receiving her M.Sc. degree from Chalmers University of Technology in 2020, Pauline moved to Amsterdam to pursue a Ph.D. Currently, she is a Ph.D. candidate at the Van’t Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences under the supervision of Prof. Timothy Noël. Her Ph.D. work will focus on the development of automated screening technologies augmented by machine learning algorithms.
