Congratulations, Prof. Aylin Aykanat!


Dr. Aylin Aykanat has been working in the Chemistry Department for the past few years as a Postdoctoral Diversity and Innovation Scholar. We are so happy to announce that she has now been hired on as our newest Assistant Professor! Prof. Aykanat studies the molecular engineering of porous materials, self-assembled from the bottom-up, for emergent function from strategically selected precursors to target desired structure-properties. Specifically, she focuses on metal-organic frameworks, covalent-organic frameworks, and crystalline coordination networks with tunable structure-property relationships as new materials aimed at addressing generational problems in biomedicine and environmental remediation. We are so excited to see how she grows her group and field of research. Congratulations, Prof. Aykanat!
