Dr. Kasra Razmkhah
I recently finished my PhD on "molecular aligning techniques for polarised spectroscopy", in a world leading spectroscopy group at the Univerisity of Warwick, under supervision of Professor Alison Rodger.
During my PhD I improved a molecular aligning method for polarised spectroscopy techniques such as linear dichroism and Raman spectroscopy. After this, by combining this method with linear dichroism theory and polarised Raman spectroscopy technique, I introduced, evaluated and developed a new polarised Raman spectroscopy technique called Raman linear difference (work was published in 2010).
During this time I worked extensively with other spectroscopy techniques such as infrared, fluorimetry, UV-visible absorption, circular dichroism, fluorescent detected linear dichroism and dynamic light scattering.I have experience of working with different type of molecules including steroids, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, dyes, proteins, DNA and lipids. Working in Prof. Rodger group I expanded the ability to interpret data I recorded in the laboratory. My collaborations with other scientists (from undergraduate students to field world leaders) granted me numerous publications (2013, 2014 and 2014). I also had the opportunity to supervise thesis projects for postgraduate students.
