CAGRI ÜZÜM, Ph.D.
Researcher and business developer. Helping customers turn science into high-impact products. Focus: Industrial applications of thin coatings and nano-structures.
I am a technology enthusiast living in Hamburg, Germany. After my PhD and postdoc in Natural Science, I worked at the nanotech startup Surflay Nanotec GmbH as a scientist and business developer. Since 2019, I am a part of technical sales team at W. R. Grace & Co. finding the best solution for specific customer requirements and applications.
My technical work focuses on understanding and making use of nanotechnology, surfaces, thin films, colloidal systems, and microscopy. I am also extremely interested in additive manufacturing technologies, photolithography and their combination with nanotechnology.
I am motivated by the idea that rapid innovation is simply the best way to create a better future and am looking forward to connecting with like-minded people.
