Personal profile


Coskun completed his BSc (2001) and MSc in Physics (2003) at Bilkent University (Turkey). He received his PhD in Physics (2007) from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA). After receiving his PhD, he worked at Harvard University as Postdoctoral Researcher, in Deapartment of Chemistry and Chemical Biology. Between 2009 and 2017, Coskun worked as assistant and associate professor at Bilkent University where he led the group of Smart Materials and Devices. His main research interest includes optoelectronic applications of graphene and other 2D materials. His research aims to understand and engineer electronic and optical responses of emerging 2D materials to fabricate new devices which cannot be realized by conventional semiconducting materials.
