MSc in Biomedical Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Surrey, UK
Degree Awarded: October 1995
Thesis Title: LABVIEW based controller for Compustim 10B surrey stimulatorThis involved designing a Labview based controller for a particular functional electrical stimulator used for the foot-drop patients.
BSc in Electronics Engineering, School of Engineering, Department of Electronics Engineering, Istanbul University
Degree Awarded: September 1993; GPA: 77.77/100
Thesis Title: Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES)
This involved investigating and designing a functional electrical stimulator to stimulate the peripheral nerves in the arm.
Research Assistant, Faculty of
Engineering and Architecture, Electronic Engineering Department,
Istanbul Kultur University, Istanbul,
The position involves research and teaching assistance of the Department including laboratory work.
Research Assistant, Department of Surgery and Anesthesia, Guys,
Kings & St Thomas School of Medicine, Kings College London,
The post was the result of the collaboration between Guys, Kings & St Thomas School of Medicine and Division of Engineering and supported by a grant from the Guy's and St Thomas Hospital Charitable Foundation. The project title was Improving the effectiveness and tolerability of non-invasive ventilation (NIPPV) thorough development of an intelligent ventilator. The investigators were Dr. DM Miller, Dr
KC Lee, Prof. J Moxham. The main achievements were: to investigate the influence of different design of facemasks and different non-invasive ventilator modes upon total dynamic dead space. As a result of this study an article has been published.
to develop testing facilities for measuring the leak of the commercially available facemasks. The tests are still on-going at Kings College Hospital, Denmark Hill and a publication is in preparation. to improve existing mechanical test lung for the repeatable and reliable testing of non-invasive ventilators.
to develop an actuation device and control software for biomedical sensing in high and variable magnetic field. This work has been done under the collaboration between Division of Engineering and Institute of Psychiatry.
Production Assistant, National Blood Service London and South
East Zone, London, UK
The post involved all routine work of the Components Department, which are processing of the donated blood packs, producing of the blood components and labeling of the products
