Associate Professor Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, OHIO

Dr. Kaya is interested in nanomaterials, transport theory, nanoelectronic device modeling, biomolecular modeling in trans-membrane proteins, electrochemical and plasma based methods in nanofabrication, nanostructures and nanosensors for interdisciplinary applications. He earned his BSc in Electronics and Communication Engineering in 1992 from Istanbul Technical University. Dr. Kaya obtained his PhD in 1998 from Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, London, for his work on strained Si quantum wells on vicinal substrates, following his MPhil in 1994 from the University of Cambridge. He was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Glasgow between 1998 and 2001, carrying out research in transport and scaling in high performance SiGe CMOS Devices and fluctuation phenomena in sub -50nm MOSFETs. He is currently with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in the Russ College of Engineering at Ohio University. He has served as Air Force Office of Scientific Research Summer Faculty Fellow from 2006 to 2008. He has over 45 journal papers and 65 conference proceedings. He was a member of the organizing committee for IWCE’7, 2000, IEEE Nanotech’6, 2006 and Program Committee’s for SPIE MNT 2010.
