Prof. Murat KAYA

Murat Kaya (20 August 1981) received his undergraduate degree in Biology from Karadeniz Technical University, Turkey in 2003. Kaya received his master and PhD in Biology from Ankara University, Turkey in 2005 and 2008, respectively. He studies on zooplankton taxonomy, ecology and molecular phylogeny during his master and PhD. He started working as an Assistant Prof. in Department of Biology, Aksaray University, Turkey in February 2009. He got a position to work as an Assoc. Prof. in 2011 in Aksaray University. Now, he has been working as a Professor in Department of Biotechnology and Molecular Biology, Aksaray University.

Kaya studied under the Erasmus Program in Gent University, Belgium for 8 months (02.01.2006- 31.08.2006). He also studied under the Erasmus Program in Imperial College, London, UK for 8 months (10.01.2008-10.09.2008). He has a scholarship from “The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK 2219)” and he has been in University of California Merced, USA from 1st of June, 2017 (until 1st of April, 2018).

Dr. Kaya is interested in zooplankton taxonomy, focusing on rotifers by using morphological and molecular techniques. He has been working on biopolymer isolation from diverse organisms and characterizing them by using the techniques such as FT-IR, TGA, DSC, XRD, NMR, SEM, TEM, AFM, confocal and different kinds of light microscopies since 2012. He is looking at material science from biological perspective. He and his co-workers found and published very important discoveries, some of the selected ones are;

  • Bat guano can be an important chitin and chitosan source (2014)
  • A new surface morphology (only nanoporous morphology) for chitin was described from wings of cockroach (2015)
  • The chitin samples isolated from different body parts of insects have different physicochemical properties (2016-2017)
  • Antimicrobial, antioxidant and antitumoral properties of chitosan samples from diverse organisms were studied (2015-2017)
  • Determination and characterization of chitin in the phyla Bryozoa and Tardigrada for the first time (2016, 2017)
  • γ-chitin was described in detail for the first time (2017)
