Dr. Avci received his master’s and PhD degree in 2010 and 2013, respectively, from Fiber and Polymer Science, College of Textiles, at NC State University. Following his graduation from NC State, he worked as a Post-Doctorate Research Associate on different projects that span unique amorphous and crystalline structure and performance of different thermoplastic polymers and nano-hybrid filtration for improving air quality in passenger aircrafts for The Boeing Company at Istanbul Technical University. Later he has joined the department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at Eskisehir Osmangazi University as an Assistant Professor since September 2014. He is also a faculty member in Cellular Therapy and Stem Cell Research Center (ESTEM). During that time, he had an opportunity to work on textile techniques to develop tissue scaffolds. He also has a strong background in textile production techniques. He expanded his background into other applications including biosensor-integrated organ-on-a-chip platform for automated and continual analyte monitoring as a research scientist at Harvard Medical School, Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology and Brigham and Women's Hospital.
His current research is focused on biosensors and healthcare technologies. His group focuses on organ-on-a-chip, biosensor, biomaterials, toxicity analysis and filtration.
