    Daniela A. Wilson is Professor of Systems Chemistry at the Institute for Molecules and Materials, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands

    Daniela A. Wilson (born Apreutesei) was educated in Romania and received her Ph.D. in chemistry working with liquid crystals with distinction “summa cum laude in 2007. During her Ph.D. she obtained two fellowships in Japan and the U.K. as an exchange Ph.D. student and Marie Curie fellow. She then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA, and Radboud University, Nijmegen, Netherlands, in the groups of Prof. Virgil Percec and Prof. Roeland Nolte. She is currently Professor of Systems Chemistry at the Institute for Molecules and Materials, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
