Research scientists / postdoctoral researchers:


Ceyla Yorucu

Ceyla studied Chemical Engineering at Swansea University, obtaining a MEng degree in 2009. She then joined the Doctoral Training Centre for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine where she completed a PhD project based at Sheffield University. Her thesis work involved spectroscopic (Raman) characterisation of engineered skin and melanoma models. Following this, she spent a year at Durham University as a PDRA working on lipid bilayers using TIR Raman Spectroscopy. She joined the Gwenin group in May to work on the CALIN project.


2015 – PhD Materials Engineering, Sheffield University.
2009 – MEng Chemical and Bio-process Engineering, Swansea University.
