Muslum Demir

When the time came to choose a university to pursue his master’s degree in chemistry, Muslum Demir says his decision was an easy one. Demir, from the city of Gaziantep in southeastern Turkey, was awarded a scholarship last year from the Republic of Turkey’s Ministry of National Education. The prestigious scholarship allows Turkish undergraduates to pursue a master’s degree and doctorate at a university of his or her choosing anywhere in the world.

“Rutgers–Camden was always my top choice,” Demir says with a smile while working in a chemistry lab on the Rutgers–Camden campus. “Even while still living in Turkey, I knew very well that Rutgers is one of the best universities in the U.S.”

At Rutgers–Camden, Demir is working on a research project that seeks to remove harmful aromatic sulfur compounds present in petroleum and liquid fuel.
