Project Title:

Optimal Plasticisers for New Biobased Plastics Through a Combined Experimental and Molecular Simulations Approach

Project Description

The purpose of the project is to lay the foundation for a “generic” model of plasticisation of polymers. For this a significantly better understanding of polymer plasticisation mechanisms and their dependence on molecular size, structure and polarity is needed. These are, in turn, linked to the free volume ratio and the molar refracivity of the plasticiser and the polymer. The methodology here to obtain a single fully generic model will be a combined experimental and simulations approach. With the model, it will be possible to determine how the next generation of “sustainable” plasticisers will look like, having high efficiency, zero migration and low health risks.

Academic Background

Bachelor’s Degree of Chemical Engineering from Yildiz Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey (2010-2014)

Exchange Erasmus student at University of Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal (2013)

Master’s Degree of Chemical Engineering from Istanbul Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey (2014-2017)


Born 1991, in Istanbul, Turkey.

After living for 26 years in Istanbul, I decided to have new experiences abroad since I love travelling a lot. This took me to Stockholm ironically in 4th of May, 2017. I am pleased to work in such a collaborative and creative environment in KTH. Besides from hanging out in the lab or with my computer, I enjoy spending time by playing bass guitar or ukulele and watching cult movies time to time. Also, I do love Fridays like everybody does in Sweden.
