Combining my enthusiasm to serve the planet and every creature on it with the joy of designing experiments. I am an experienced Research Scholar with a demonstrated history of working in the higher education industry. Skilled in Polymer Chemistry, Nanomaterials, Materials Science and Characterization Methods. I have strong research professional with a PhD degree focused in biosensing applications of silica nanoparticle-copolymer composite structures by Surface Plasmon Resonance Spectroscopy as well as postdoctoral experience in cellulose nanocrystal (CNC) surface functionalization to make nature sourced structures compatible with polymer matrixes when aimed to be used as reinforcing agent.
Zehra's research focuses on developing sustainable nanofillers based on bio-sourced cellulose nanocrystal (CNC) to reinforce polymer materials.
