Ülkü Anik was born in 1973 in Nicosia, Cyprus and graduated at Ege University (Turkey) in chemistry (B.S. degree) in 1995. She received her M.S. degree in analytical chemistry in 1998 and Ph.D. degree in analytical chemistry in 2003. She visited Dr. Wang’s Laboratory in 2000 for five months and was involved in researches like development and application of new electrode materials, preparation of different electrochemical sensors and biosensors and advanced electrochemical stripping techniques. In 2004, she visited Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Department de Quimica Unitat de Analitica with Professor Dr. Arben Merkoçi and Professor Dr. Salvador Alegret and worked on application of graphite-epoxy electrodes with bismuth in the determination of heavy metals and electrochemical characterization of electroactive nanoparticles. In 2008, she joined Nanobioelectronics and Biosensors Group Institut Català de Nanotecnologia Barcelona, Catalonia and worked on novel electrode materials for sensors and biosensors. In 2009, she visited Biomaterials Center and International Center for Materials Nanoarchitechtonics (MANA) ve Natural Institute of Material Science (NIMS) (Japan) as Invited Researcher and worked on DWCNT based biosensors. Currently, she serves as an Associate Professor at the Chemistry Department at Mugla University (Turkey). Her working subjects are electroanalytical and bioelectroanalytical chemistry including nanoparticle-based enzymatic and microbial biosensors.
