I recently completed my Ph.D. in Electronics Engineering from Sabanci University Istanbul Turkey. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Dawood University of Engineering and Technology, Karachi Pakistan in Electronics Engineering. During my Ph.D. I was part of the Acoustics Research Group. My research interests include Acoustics, MEMS-based sensors, and actuators, Semiconductor Technology, Microfabrication Techniques, Biomedical Microsystem devices, and Electronic Devices. In my Ph.D. dissertation titled “Fabrication of CMUTs based on PMMA adhesive wafer bonding”, I developed a novel, simple and economical technique for fabrication of Capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers (CMUTs) to transmit and receive ultrasonic signals. Along with establishing the theoretical foundations of these transducers, I also fabricated these MEMS-based ultrasonic devices with the existing fabrication techniques that can be used in different applications, such as, biological cell detection, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and underwater acoustics. I have been able to showcase my work by publishing in internationally reputable peer-reviewed journals and have been given the opportunity to present my
papers before the scientific community. This is a testament to the fact that my professional experience during graduate studies have equipped me with diverse knowledge in the field of Microelectronics, MEMS-based design and fabrication, and Biomedical Microsystems and Devices. Furthermore, working as a graduate research assistant at Sabanci University Turkey not only provided me an opportunity to acquire hands-on experience of electronic device fabrication techniques, such as lithography, etching, deposition, etc, to gain expertise in the modern fabrication and characterization techniques, but also a chance to work in a multicultural environment to develop interpersonal, communication, leadership skills and the ability to develop new research projects.
