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 he worked with Prof. Pulickel M. Ajayan. During my doctoral research, I worked on design and synthesis of carbon-based structural nanomaterials for critically needed applications (e.g. water, energy and enverinmental applications). Currently, I am working on design and innovation of multifunctional composite aerogels for extreme enverinmental applications.
