We kindly welcome Dr. Vishnu Chauhan, who joined our group as postdoc in October 2022.
Vishnu is the awardee of a Post-Doctoral Industrial Fellowship for one year, co-funded by the Department of Science and Technology of the Indian Government and the BMBF. He earned his Ph.D. in physics from Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Delhi, where he gained experience on ion beam irradiation effects and defect formation in metal oxides and nanocomposite thin films for various applications. During his stay at GSI, his research will concentrate on the synthesis and characterization of low-dimensional oxide materials.
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.
