In 2004, he was awarded the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) fellowship, and from 2004 to 2006, he was a visiting scientist at the Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST), Japan. In 2006, he got his tenure and was promoted to Assoc. Prof. position at the Gebze Technical University. In 2012, he was promoted to full Professor at the same university. He is the co-founder and Chief Technical Officer of the spin-off, ENS Piezodevices Ltd. He has published over 60 SCI publications and he is holder of one US and one Turkish patent. He is currently co-supervisor of the Information Materials and Device Technologies Research Group, aka the Piezodevices Research Group.

Muhammet Boz, M.Sc.

R&D Engineer

Muhammet Boz graduated from the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at Kocaeli University in 2016. In 2021, he completed his master's degree in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Gebze Technical University and started his doctoral studies in the same department. During his master's program, he conducted research on production of cylindrical-shaped piezoelectric ceramic transducers in array design. Additionally, he has been working as an R&D engineer at ENS Piezodevices Ltd. since 2019, where he is involved in the design, modeling, and production of piezoelectric transducers.
