About Me

profile picture


My name is Tina Borke. I’m a polymer chemist, currently based in Helsinki and about to finalize my PhD. My research is focused on synthesis and modification of biopolymers – ranging from biodegradable polyesters for packaging applications to polysaccharide copolymers for targeted ocular drug delivery.

When I’m not cooking up polymers in the lab or talking at seminars, I enjoy challenging myself at the karate dojo or bouldering wall, or I relax curled up on my couch with a knitting project.

This is my personal website, where you can get to know me and learn more about polymers through my blog.  I’m currently seeking job opportunities in the polymers, pharmaceuticals or life science industry in Finland or Germany.

Please contact me to find out how I can help you with your research challenges!
