Bio

Eugenia Kumacheva is a University Professor and Distinguished Professor of Chemistry in the University of Toronto and Canada Research Chair in Advanced Polymer Materials (Tier 1). Her primary research interests are in the materials science of soft matter, including polymer and nanoscience, and microfluidics. Among Kumacheva's awards are De Gennes Prize, Killam Fellowship, Macromolecular Science and Engineering Award, Clara Benson Award (CIC), Schlumberger Scholarship (U.K.), International Chorafas Foundation Award in Physics and Engineering (Switzerland), Humboldt Research Award (Germany) and the 2009 L'Oreal-UNESCO Award “For Women in Science” (given to 5 laureates in the world). In 2017, she was recipient of the Canada Institute for Chemistry (CIC) medal, "a mark of distinction and recognition to a person who has made an outstanding contribution to the science of chemistry or chemical engineering in Canada, this is the CIC’s top award." She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and Royal Society (U.K.) and Officer of the Order of Canada.
