Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Middle East Technical University, 06800, Çankaya, Ankara, Turkey
I am a PhD student in the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department at Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey. I earned my B.S in 2017 (graduated as Summa Cum Laude and obtained my M.Sc. degree (Thesis Title: Development of Electrically Conductive Porous Silk Fibroin/Carbon Nanofiber Scaffolds) in 2020 from the same department. Currently, my research field is biomaterials, to improve my understanding on material-tissue interactions. Specifically, I am pursuing my Ph.D for the development of ceramic particle incorporated materials, nanocomposites for biomedical applications. Towards this goal, I am investigating the effect of carbon nanofibers (CNF) on the mechanical, electrical and biological properties of silk fibroin/CNF nanocomposites. In addition, I focus on the development of yttria stabilized zirconia/clay composites for dental applications. In brief, all these studies gave me the hands-on working experience with a variety of ceramic and ceramic nanoparticle incorporated biomaterials and provided a chance for the assessment of their biological and antibacterial properties. Undoubtedly, it is fulfilling to learn more about biomaterials and know that your research will someday contribute to human wellbeing.
