Research Interest
Noverra has two main research interests:

  • (responsive) polymer synthesis for controlled release application
  • Modification of (bio)degradable polymers

Her research focus on the synthesis/ modification of polymers and polymer characterization in respect of chemical structure, molar masses, responsive behavior, particle sizes, and thermal behavior using 1 H-NMR, FTIR, DLS, DSC, etc.

Short Biography

Noverra M. Nizardo has a strong education background in polymer chemistry which she gained firstly during her Bachelor degree in Department of Chemistry, FMIPA, Universitas Indonesia. She was awarded DAAD Scholarship to pursue her Master degree in Polymer Science joint program (in Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, and Universität Potsdam, Germany) from 2008 to 2010 as well as her Doctoral degree in Universität Potsdam, Germany from 2014 to 2018, during which she strengthen her knowledges and skills in the field of polymer chemistry. She works at Department of Chemistry, Universitas Indonesia as lecturer and as the Head of Organic Chemistry division. Her research interest focused on the synthesis of (responsive) polymers, i.e, for controlled release, and modification of (bio)degradable polymers.
