I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Mechanical Engineering at Newcastle University as of June 2022. Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Department of Physical Intelligence in Stuttgart, Germany. I obtained my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Koc University, Turkey, in 2018. I got my B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 2012.
My research interests are centered on small-scale medical robots, acoustics, ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging, and lab-on-a-chip systems. In particular, my research thrusts focus on developing medical microrobots and microfluidic devices for biomedical applications by exploiting multiphysics computational modeling, advanced robot design and fabrication techniques, wireless actuation methods using acoustic and magnetic fields, microrobot tracking via ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging, and minimally-invasive medical interventions.
