A warm welcome to our new postdoc Dr. Dila Kaya.
Dila received her M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in the Physical Chemistry program of Yildiz Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey. So far in her career, she mainly focused on ion-track etching and the applications of synthetic nanopores. Some of these applications are based on either resistive-pulse or ion-current rectification sensing paradigms using single nanopores for the detection of various analytes including biomaterials, nanoparticles and metal ions. She also has experience on tailoring nanopore geometry and surface groups as well as mass transport of analytes utilizing multiporous membranes. She joined us at GSI as a postdoc scientist to focus on the fabrication and design of nanopores to be used as protein crystallizing media for in situ diffraction data collection.
