About me:

I am very experienced with nanocomposite materials, energy storage and conversation systems. Also I am experienced with writing academic and industrial projects.  I would like to say that I am a person who is self motivated, highly adaptable to change and a fast learner.I have completed my master that is about "Design of Nitrate-Based Molten Salt/Nanoporous Aluminum Membrane Composite Structures With Improved Thermophysical Properties for Use in Concentrated Solar Thermal Plants".

I have so many successes in my career so far and I want to improve myself as an engineer. I have 4 years of experience in academia as a teaching/researching assistant and project manager and also have 2 years of experience in R&D industry. I have used so many characterization instruments such as XRD, DSC, SEM, TEM, TGA, XPS etc., during my academic and industrial career. Moreover, I am also very experienced with programing and code writing software such as FORTRAN, MATLAB, C#, C++ etc.

Experience

After completing my BSc, I worked at a research-focused company as a project engineer. As an engineer, my duty in the company was writing and reporting on a project about thermal transport experiments of the heat exchangers in concentrated solar power plants and I was also involved the manufacturing process of this project. Thus, I got materials science and thermal analysis experience in this role. Moreover, we also developed computer scripts using MATLAB and FORTRAN that could calculate the thermal efficiency of the concentrated solar power plants planned to be built in Turkey. 

While working in the R&D company, I noticed that I had very deep interest in research, so I applied for the Micro and Nanotechnology Master Program at TOBB University of Economics and Technology. To create my own funding for my M.Sc. education, I have written an academic research project with my advisor Dr. Hatice Duran Durmus, titled “Design of nitrate-based molten salt/nanoporous aluminum membrane composite structures with improved thermophysical properties for use in concentrated solar thermal plants” funded by Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK). I have been involved in grant writing, design, and execution of the projects from beginning to the end. We developed a new nanocomposite material with improved thermophysical properties to use in a concentrated solar thermal plant.When all the measurements and calculations were completed, I wrote a final report to present our results to TUBITAK and we finalized the project successfully. I presented my study in 2021 fall meeting of material research society (MRS) and researchers were deeply interested this thermal conductivity design. We are currently finalizing a publication from my M.Sc. education.

Education

I completed my BSc as a Nuclear Energy Engineer from Hacettepe University in Turkey. During my BSc, I have extensively studied theoretical, computational, and experimental courses. My undergraduate classes focused heavily on advanced mathematics and physics related subjects such as modern and particle physics, advanced thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer, materials science, and reactor theory. Thus, I am proficient in math, physics, programming, and quantum mechanics. In the last year of my undergraduate, I participated a project competition in my college. My project was about “Neutronic and Closed Channel Thermal Hydraulic Analysis for KLT-40 Floating Nuclear Reactor” and with this project, I have won the “best engineering project award” in the “Hacettepe University Faculty of Engineering 11th Project Exhibition”.
