Selcan Karakus

Asst. Prof. Dr.Istanbul UniversityTurkey

Assistant Professor Selcan Karakuş is currently working at the Department of Chemistry, Istanbul University (IU), Turkey. She received her Master of Science degree in Physical Chemistry from IU in 2006. She received her Doctor of Philosophy degree in Physical Chemistry from IU in 2011. She has worked as a visiting researcher at the University of Massachusetts, Department of Polymer Science and Engineering. She has research experience in molecular adsorption, drug carrier system, nanoparticles, nanocomposites, nanoemulsion self-assembled polymeric nanostructures and copolymer blends. She worked on different projects funded by Istanbul University. She has published several research articles and a book chapter in this area. She has published books titled “Molecular Self-assembly in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology”. Her edited books provide information about self-assembly in nanotechnology with their limitations, along with examples and research-based results with discussion. She has been working on the preparation of new nanostructures under the influence of ultrasonic effects, ultrasonic encapsulation, and nanoparticles. Recently she has been involved in the characterization and preparation of nanostructure, nanoparticles and nanoemulsion systems as potential candidates for a wide range of uses in the industry. She also acts as Editor for different publishers.
