Dr. Turak is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering Physics at McMaster. She was a Marie Curie Fellow at the Max-Planck-Institute for Metals Research (2008-2010), as project leader on Organic solar cells (LiFOrgPV), before taking up a visiting professor position at Sabanci University in Istanbul, Turkey to lecture on organic electronics (2011). She received her doctorate from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto in 2006, where she was a Canada Graduate Scholar working on organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). Her research is focused on interfacial chemical and structural engineering for improved device performance in organic optoelectronic devices, and order-disorder transitions in granular media.
