12th December 2022 – Bio-inspired Optical Materials

Developing sensors by mimicking nature’s colour mechanisms

Dr. Ahu Gümrah Parry is a Dame Kathleen Lonsdale Research Fellow at the University of Manchester.  Her latest work focuses on tailoring shape, size and surface chemistry of nanoparticles (mainly produced from natural and sustainable sources) to fabricate photonic structures.  Her interests include novel and sustainable packaging materials and colourful responsive films and fabrics.

Originally scheduled for September 2022, unforeseen circumstances meant this talk had to be postponed – it has now been rescheduled. We look forward to welcoming Dr. Parry in December
