I received my B.Sc. degree in Physics from Karadeniz Technical University, Turkey in 2007. Then I received my M.S. degree in Materials Science and Engineering in 2011 and Ph.D. degree in Engineering Science and Mechanics in 2016 from The Penn State University, USA. I worked as a Postdoctoral Associate in Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science Department at Duke University, USA (2016-2017). Currently I am an Asst. Prof. of Mechanical engineering at Aydın Adnan Menderes Univertsity. My research interest includes biomedical applications of micro/nano electromechanical systems (BioNEMS/BioMEMS), microfluidics, micro-total-analysis-systems, acoustofluidics, and materials science.
