Oguzhan received his Ph.D. degree in the Electrical Engineering at Boston University, where his research in the Optical
Characterization and Nanophotonics Laboratory (OCN) focused on physical modeling and development of high-resolution
optical imaging systems for multiplexed nanoparticle detection and characterization. He also holds an M.S degree in Electrical
Engineering from Boston University and a B.S degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Bilkent University. He
studied his junior year at University of California, San Diego, at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, via
Education Abroad Program. He also held research intern positions at Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL)
and Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology (HST). Please see his CV for detailed information.
