Leonardo Chiappisi was born in Palermo, Italy, on February 28, 1987. During his Bachelor thesis he investigated the self-assembly behavior of EO-PO-EO block copolymers supervised by Prof. Milioto. In 2009 he moved to Berlin, where he got his M. Sc. in Chemistry. His master thesis “Complexes of chitosan with oppositely charged anionic surfactants: thermodynamics, structure and kinetics ” was performed in the group of Prof. Gradzielski. In the same group he started his Ph.D in October 2011.
