Biography
Zeliha received her PhD in Chemistry from Dublin City University, Ireland, under the supervision of Prof. Andreas Heise on functional polymers from macrolactones. Her thesis focused on the design of (bio) functional materials for biomedical applications from naturally occurring macrolactones. After her PhD, she conducted the research on the kinetics of polypeptides via ROP in DCU within an adjacent industrial project. She later worked on glycopeptides for antifreeze applications as a Research Scholar at University of Utah. She is currently designing materials for biosensor applications at the Department of Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry, University of Pisa.
