Academic interests

  • molecular exchange kinetics in self-assembling systems: polymeric micelles, antimicrobial peptides
  • (time-resolved) small-angle neutron/X-ray scattering
  • cooperative phenomena in mixed systems
  • influence of molecular architecture and crystallization on exchange kinetics




Master of Science in Physics granted by TU Dortmund University, Germany:

"Characterization of Human Immunoglobulin G Antibodies using Small-Angle X-ray Scattering"

(Supervisor: Metin Tolan)


Joint PhD position at Jülich Center for Neutron Science, Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH, Germany, and Kjemisk institutt, Universitetet i Oslo, Norway:
