About me

I am very interested in bio-based and inspiring smart structures,related technologies and their profound mechanisms (e.g self-cleaning, self-healing, biopolymes, keratin based-biocomposites, methadology of bicomponent structures,breathable mechanisms etc.)

And I have been doing my M.Sc at Tampere University of Technology in Finland in Institute of Fiber Material Sciences for 2 years with my current research to develop biocompatible and sustainable bio-fibre based textile fibres, structures, composites for hard tissue engineering applications to be applied into medical areas (e.g instead of damaged bones, joints inside of body, developing scaffolds as natural tissues and structures of our body).

I have already dedicated my life to be one of the top researchers, product developers and futurists in the world by also using bio-inspirational and sustainable investigation tools.

Credentials
I have received the my B.Sc. degree in Textile Technologies and Sciences at Suleyman Demirel University in 2009. And during my education at Tampere University of Technology in Finland in 2008, I have also specially researched about Nano and Smart Textile Technologies (e.g Advanced surface modification techniques of fibres and fabrics to get natural qualifications, characterization of medical and industrial nonwovens). And I have been doing my M.Sc at the same university in Finland in Institute of Fiber Material Sciences for 2 years with my current research to develop biocompatible and sustainable bio-fibre based textile fibres, structures, composites for hard tissue engineering applications to be applied into medical areas (e.g instead of damaged bones, joints inside of body, developing scaffolds as natural tissues and structures of our body). Also, during my education in Finland, 1.5 years, I worked as technical consultant for product development of novel fibres and smart textile technologies in Innovalogy company in Finland. By this consultancy, I have realized various technical projects about bio-composites and fibres to be used in textile industry. In addition, for more than 1 year, I am a curator at AskNature Project of Biomimicry Institute for technical development of novel insulation system of down feathers. And relatively I am also member of Fiber Society in the USA and The Society of Fiber Science and Technology in Japan for 3 years.
Curation scope
Natural Insulation and Comfort of Fibres and Fabrics by bio-inspiration of down feathers (e.g Somateria spectabilis) Morphology and Technical Structure of Natural Bones for hard tissue engineering applications (e.g joints, bio-implants by using of bio-composite and hybrid structures with nano-drug delivery systems for curing) Novel structure of trees and organisms for heat resistant fibre and fabrics (e.g Betula nigra, Agrilus anxius) For example of my curator task: http://www.asknature.org/strategy/633b9c989caa1258a75e20ba89d00047
