Mr Selman Gultekin is a Postgraduate Research Student within Bioengineering Sciences in Engineering and the Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

The most genuine guides in life are wisdom and science.” - Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

The four years PhD project `Developing microfluidics based platforms for rapid testing of microbial resistance to antibiotics’ will perform by Sel who has got fully-funded directly from Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPRSC), here at the University of Southampton. Sel going to focus on various subject such as fabrication of microfluidics (pumps, detector etc.), microplates and their applicability in any biological activities. During his PhD research here at the University of Southampton, he is going to supervised by Professor Xunli Zhang and Dr Xize Niu.

Sel obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Firat University in Turkey after four-years undergraduate program in Chemistry which formed the foundation of his desire to acquire an in-depth knowledge in the field of Chemistry. As part of his degree course, he studied multiple subjects relating to diverse aspects of Chemistry such as Analytical, Organic, Inorganic and Physical Chemistry.

After completed the Bachelor`s degree successfully he has got an offer placement of Master of Science from Keele University in the UK. While he is studying for MSc in Analytical Chemistry at Keele University, he developed a particular interest in the separation science especially liquid chromatography. His master thesis, supervised by Dr Anthony Edge (Agilent Technologies) and Dr David Thompson (Keele University), was on this topic of developing testing protocols to characterise protein-substrate interactions, which engendered his interest in this topic. When he was performing his master thesis research at Agilent Technologies, he has involved some other projects such as the effects of temperature and the flow rate on Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC) and optimised Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) system for high resolution chromatography.
