Our Collaborators

Our collaboration with Dr. Kibum Kang is accelerated thanks to the generous supports from Korean NRF and TUBITAK.

We have been collaborating with Dr. Göknur Cambaz-Büke on the synthesis and characterization of MAXenes.

We collaborate with Dr. Cem Sevik on the simulation of MAXenes with Dr. Cambaz-Büke.

Dr. Engin Durgun and his research group provides computational support to our studies.

We are looking for highly motivated scientists to work with us. There are multiple opennings. Please contact TSK for details.
