College of St. Scholastica
About this team member
Takunda was born and raised in Zimbabwe where he completed his primary and high school education. In 2012, he came to study at College of St Scholastica in Duluth, MN through a program called the United States Achievers Program (USAP). There he earned his BS in mathematics and chemistry. In general, Takunda’s research interests lie in the design and application of polymeric materials. With the experience gained, his goal is to help solve general third world problems using polymer chemistry, and to discover cheaper and sustainable polymer processing methods. Currently, Takunda is working on methods to improve the dielectric properties of polyolefin based plastics for industrial processing applications.
In his spare time, Takunda plays a lot of chess and casually enjoys cooking – “never trust a chemist who cannot cook!”
