Personal profile

Research profile

Sean J.D. lugger is a Ph.D. candidate in the research group Stimuli-responsive Functional Materials and Devices under the supervision of Prof. Albert Schenning. His current research interests center on stimuli-responsive polymeric materials based on thermoplastic liquid crystal elastomers with the goal of creating recyclable and sustainable soft actuators with enhanced performance for smart polymers. This entails the development of polymer materials with new responsive and dynamic functionalities and integrating them into applications to meet industrial and societal challenges.

Academic background

Sean J. D. Lugger received his B.Sc. (2017) and M.Sc. (2019) degrees in Chemistry & Chemical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology, in which he studied mechanochemistry in polymeric materials under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Rint Sijbesma. Afterward, he joined the group Stimuli-responsive Functional Materials and Devices of Prof. Dr. Albert Schenning at the Eindhoven University of Technology, where he is currently pursuing his Ph.D. His research focuses on the development and processing of stimuli-responsive supramolecular liquid crystal elastomers as soft actuators.


Like all polymer materials, stimuli-responsive polymers should become recyclable or reusable.
