Nanoscale Horizons Emerging Investigator Series – Ahu Gümrah Dumanli-Parry

Nanoscale Horizons Emerging Investigator Series

Congratulations to our latest Emerging Investigator Dr Ahu Gümrah Dumanli-Parry (University of Manchester, UK)!

Since the launch of Nanoscale Horizons, the journal has had a clear vision to publish exceptionally high-quality work whilst acting as a resource to researchers working at all career levels. We continue to be impressed by the quality of the research published and at the same time are looking for new ways of recognising and promoting the outstanding authors behind articles published in the journal.

Last year we launched an Emerging Investigator Series to showcase the exceptional work published by early-career researchers in the journal. We will regularly select a recently published Communication article and publish an interview-style Editorial article featuring the corresponding author. We hope that the series will also benefit the nanoscience community by highlighting the exciting work being done by its early-career members.

We are excited to share our latest Emerging Investigator, Dr Ahu Gümrah Dumanli-Parry (University of Manchester, UK)!

Dr Ahu Gümrah Dumanli-Parry is a Materials Chemist and the first recipient of the bp-ICAM Kathleen Lonsdale Research Fellowship received in 2019 for her work on bio-inspired advanced materials. She obtained her PhD from the Sabanci University, Istanbul and was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Cambridge and Adolphe Merkle Institute in Switzerland.

Dr Dumanli-Parry’s research group focuses on understanding of the self-assembly process in nature and mimicking it to produce structurally ordered materials. Dr Dumanli-Parry investigates the complex relationship between the intrinsic properties of colloidal building blocks and the physical effects that modulate the self-assembly process to build active matter for sensing technologies and shape morphing systems as well as light harvesting applications.
