Nesrin Horzum studied chemistry at the Pamukkkale University in 2004. She did her M.Sc. and Ph.D. studies in Department of Chemistry at the Izmir Institute of Technology. From 2008 to 2013 she worked under the supervision of Professor M. M. Demir, and she received her doctoral degree in 2013 from the Izmir Institute of Technology, with a thesis about the applications of electrospun nanofibers in filtration processes. During her Ph.D., she joined the department of Professor K. Landfester in the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in August 2011 as a visiting scholar, investigating colloid electrospinning and surface functionalization of electrospun nanofibers. In 2014, she joined the group of Prof. Bo Liedberg at the Nanyang Technological University, where she worked at Centre for Biomimetic Sensor Science on paper based sensing platforms. She is now Associated Professor in the Izmir Kâtip Çelebi University, Turkey. She has coauthored about 50 scientific peer-reviewed publications and 8 book chapters. Her current research interests include filtration and sensing applications of polymeric and hybrid nanofibers, as well as smartphone-based sensors for water quality monitoring and biomolecule detection.
