Janno Torop received a PhD degree in physical engineering from University of Tartu in 2012. His dissertation focused on nanoporous carbon containing flexible composite films and their applications as low-voltage driven, ion conductive polymer actuators and sensors. Soon after the PhD studies he received a Carl Trygger fellowship for post-doc position in Linköping University, Sweden. In spring 2013 he joind Biosensors and Bioelectronics Centre, under the mentorship of Prof. Anthony P.F. Turner and Dr. Edwin Jager. He worked on a project based on polypyrrole and nanocarbon integrated hybrid materials for (micro)actuator applications. In 2015 he got a visiting researcher fellowship in Lappeenranta Technical University in Finland. During this period he actively collaborated with scientists from UPM Kymmene on biopolymeric materials and application. His current research interests are related to “smart” electroactive film actuators and bioengineered sensor systems by combining porous carbon materials and conjugated polymers in order to improve energy efficiency during actuation cycle.
