I am PCCM postdoctoral fellow working with Prof. Rodney Priestley and Prof. Craig Arnold. I received my B.S. and M.S. in Chemistry from Fatih University and my Ph.D. in Materials Science and Nanoengineering Department at Rice University where I worked with Prof. Pulickel M. Ajayan. During my doctoral research, I worked on design and synthesis of carbon-based structural nanomaterials. Currently, I am working on design and innovation of multifunctional composite aerogels.
