Research assistant in the Physics Department of Middle East Technical University
Developed various computer programs, based on exciton physics and Förster mechanism. These programs were used to run numerical experiments to investigate the structure-function relationship and energy transfer processes in the various photosynthetic Light-Harvesting complexes including Chlorophyll protein 29 and Light-Harvesting complex II of green plants, Fenna-Matthews-Olson complex of green sulfur bacteria Cholorobium tepidum and Prosthecoclaris aestuarii and Chlorosomes.
VISITING RESEARCHER: 7th May – 7th August, 2001, Vrije University, Amsterdam
Three months visit to Laboratory of the Biophysics Group at the Vrije University, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, under the European Science Foundation (ESF) “Femtochemistry and Femtobiology-ULTRA Programme”, in the year 2001. During this visit, some experimental techniques have been learnt and absorption, linear
dichroism, circular dichroism, polarized fluorescence and fluorescence line narrowing spectral measurements have been performed on a specific light-harvesting complex from green sulphur bacterium. The complex studied was the Fenna-Matthews-Olson complex of Cholorobium tepidum.
