MacDiarmid Institute alumna Dr Nihan Aydemir is now a Postdoctoral chemist at Plant and Food Research.
Her current research is focused on mimicking how insects use proteins to smell. Nihan’s ultimate aim is to insert biosensors into mobile phones that can ‘smell’ and detect, for example, explosives and illegal drugs at airports.
The science is cool. It’s like you're the first one doing something on earth.Dr Nihan Aydemir Plant and Food Research Chemist
