Céline Calvino is currently a PhD student in Prof. Christoph Weder's research group in the Adolphe Merkle Institute at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland.

Funded by the Swiss National Center of Competence in Research Bio-Inspired Materials, Céline’s project aims to replicate artificially mechanotransduction systems found in nature and implement them into synthetic polymers. Her ongoing research focuses on the preparation and investigation of chromophores that rely on supramolecular interactions to furnish a chromogenic response. Ultimately, the goal of employing these systems into materials should allow for a straightforward approach for the detection of mechanical damage in polymeric materials.
