I studied Mechanical Engineering at Middle East Technical University in Ankara. Later, in 2009, I started following the Master’s Program Sustainable Energy Technology at Eindhoven University of Technology. I have done my master’s graduation project in the M2N research group. My project was based on the optimization and fabrication of triple junction polymer solar cells. Right after my master’s, I followed a PhD study in the M2N group, under the supervision of dr. M.M. Wienk and prof. R.A.J. Janssen. My PhD project was focused on photoelectrochemical water splitting with polymer solar cells. This project involved combining and optimizing photovoltaic conversion and electrochemical conversion for solar fuels purposes.
Since 2016, I am a postdoc in the M2N group, working on a project with the aim of a more sustainable future by CO2 reduction.
