Dr. A. Alperen Günay joined BilMech as an assistant professor!
In February, Dr. A. Alperen Günay joined BilMech as an assistant professor! Günay received his B.S. in mechanical engineering from the Middle East Technical University (METU) in 2014, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (UIUC) in 2016 and 2019, respectively. His graduate work focused on thermal management, energy conversion, interfacial science, and renewable energy. He worked as a researcher at The University of Tokyo between 2019 and 2021 where he worked on radiative cooling, silicon-based thermoelectrics, nanoscale energy transport, and sorption dynamics of metal-organic-framework (MOF) coatings. Prior to joining BilMech, Dr. Günay was an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at METU. His research efforts are focused on designing self-standing ecological devices for thermal applications and includes a combination of fundamental and applied research on nanomaterials, energy conversion materials and thermal management through phase change.
