M. Deniz Yilmaz was born on 14th April 1979 in Ankara, Turkey. He obtained B.Sc. degree from Chemistry Department of Ankara University in 2003. He completed his M.Sc. studies under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Engin U. Akkaya in Middle East Technical University, Chemistry Department, in 2006. During his studies, he mainly worked on the functional supramolecular systems which could function as chemosensors for anions, cations and neutral molecules; light harvesting systems (efficient energy transfer cassettes); synthesis of photosensitizers for photodynamic therapy and dye sensitized solar cell (DSSCs) applications. Since June 2007, he is a PhD candidate in the Laboratories of Supramolecular Chemistry and Technology (SMCT) and Molecular Nanofabrication (MnF) under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Jurriaan Huskens. The goal of his project is to preparation of hybrid, multilayered materials with a complex architecture. This will be achieved via the supramolecular, bottom-up assembly of building blocks employing multivalent, orthogonal interactions.
