Welcome

I was born in 1990 in Trabzon, which is one of the nice and warm cities of Turkey near the Blacksea. After my first years there, my family moved to Elazig, Turkey where I got my primary, secondary and high school degrees. In 2007, I enrolled in  Bilkent University, Ankara where I did my major in  Electrical and Computer Engineering Department . During my college years, my tuition and other educational expenses were covered by the Bilkent University's scholarship along with a stipend since I was amongst the top 100 student in the nationwide university entrance exam (OSS) with around 1.6 million participants at the time. After getting my B.S. in 2012, I got enrolled in the PhD program of  ECE Department at  Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA where I am a research assistant in  PMaNS research group since then.

My research interests include Micro/Nano ElectroMechanical Systems (M/NEMS) for radio front-ends and microwave systems, Integrated RF MEMS components, MEM-enabled IC design and Piezoelectric Materials.

Application of Statistical Element Selection in Self-Healing AlN Band Pass filters:

AlN MEMS Contour Mode Resonators (CMRs) offer high quality factor and high electro mechanical coupling. Additionally, the center frequency is set by lithography. These properties are ideal for synthesis of high performance Band Pass Filters (BPFs). However, practical implementation of such resonators in filter synthesis is hindered by fabrication variations. To address this challenge, we propose the use of a statistical element selection (SES) technique in which a subset of M filters from a bank of N filters is selected using CMOS switches. The filter in each branch is composed of AlN MEMS CMRs. Integration of the CMOS switches with AlN CMRs is achieved thorugh 3D hybrid integration. The MEMS and CMOS chips are solder bump-bonded to each other. The simulated advantages enabled by the SES tehcnique on the yield of high perforamcen BPFs are indicated as high as ~90% of all available configurations (was around 10 % without SES).
