Tuba is a member within the Euro-MIC COST framework. This project is funded by the European Union and enables scientists to bridge knowledge and capabilities across countries and disciplines.

Summary of the experiences and competences of Tuba

Assist. Prof. Dr. Tuba Unsal Ozguvenc (Istanbul University, Institute of Marine Science and Management) gained her PhD in Biology/Industrial Microbiology-Corrosion. She is a well experienced in microbiological assays (e.g. Bacterial enumeration techniques, spectrophotometric analysis (Protein and carbohydrate), materials characterization techniques, corrosion mechanisms, electrochemical techniques for studying corrosion; biofilm mitigation tests, worked for 15 years on MIC related topics including two years at Ohio University, Institute for Corrosion & Multiphase Technology, (The largest research facility in the world in the field of corrosion of oil and gas pipelines) USA. She has worked as a principal investigator in various MIC projects for companies in USA. Also, she has published many articles in journals with a high-impact factor in this field.
Dr. Tuba Unsal Ozguvenc is a member of Review Board of Industrial Biotechnology. (Frontiers in Bioengineering and Biotechnology) and Guest Co-Editor of Frontiers In Metals and Alloys, 2023, and working as a reviewer for other SCI journals.

Looking for help? Tuba can help you with the following items

Although MIC is a rapidly growing field worldwide, the number of scientists working in this field in the world is very limited because working in this field requires both serious microbiology and engineering knowledge. I can help people to understand MIC under microbiology and biotechnology-engineering perspective. Also I can help the application and assessment of electrochemical and microbiological assays (such as aerobic and anaerobic culture methods, isolation and culture methods in particular sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB)) related MIC. I am open to collaborate on projects that focus on MIC. I’d like to host young career researchers, including post-doctoral fellows and students on PhD, master levels.
