Hello, I am Cahit Dalgicdir
Born and grew up in Istanbul, Turkey. Postdoctoral computational researcher working on polymers and peptides using molecular dynamics and other computational methods.
I currently work at Thermo-Fluids & Interfaces (previously Center of Smart Interfaces) in Technical University of Darmstadt, in Germany with Prof. van der Vegt in the Computational Physical Chemistry group.
I am interested in conformational transitions, understanding mechanisms and driving forces for such transitions through computational techniques such as molecular dynamics, or advanced sampling techniques. I also develop working coarse-grain models that can reproduce such behaviors.
Currently, I am working on cononsolvency of PNIPAM in water/methanol solutions with Dr. Francísco Rodriguez Ropero.
