Eva studied chemistry at the University of Bonn, Germany and the University of Zurich, Switzerland. She obtained her PhD in 1998 from the MPI for Polymer Research in Mainz (Klaus Muellen group). A postdoctoral fellowship with CPIMA (NSF-Center for Polymer Interfaces and Macromolecular Assemblies) brought her to the IBM Almaden Research Center, California USA, focusing on the development of new living free polymerization techniques and approaches to nanoscopic materials working with Craig Hawker. In 2001, she joined XenoPort, Inc. as a Staff Scientist and started 2004 at Vanderbilt University as Assistant Professor with a primary appointment in the Department of Chemistry and a secondary appointment in the Department of Pharmacology, VUMC. In 2007, she was awarded with the NSF CAREER Award. In 2011, she was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure and served three years as the Director and DGS of the Interdisciplinary Materials Science Graduate Program (IMS). During her career at Vanderbilt, she developed the nanosponge delivery system and the first generation of this technology is under license by a biotech start-up. Starting in the Fall 2017, she moved to the University of Houston where she is appointed as Full Professor with tenure in the Department of Chemistry and serves as the Director of the Center of Excellence in Polymer Chemistry, funded by the Welch Foundation and the University of Houston. From 2009-2018 she served full term as an Associate Editor for Polymer Chemistry, a journal of the RSC.
