Dr. Balci received his PhD from the
University of Maryland, College Park in the field of high temperature
superconductivity under the supervision of Prof. Richard Greene. He
switched his research field to single molecule biophysics during his
post-doctoral career. As a post-doc he worked in the laboratories of
Prof. Paul Selvin and Prof. Taekjip Ha at the University of Illinois,
Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Balci currently studies DNA-protein interactions
in the context of DNA repair using high resolution fluorescence
