Sabanci University, Mechatronics Engineering Program

Ali Kosar received the B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Bogazici University, Istanbul, in 2001. He pursued his graduate study in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute between 2001 and 2006. He completed his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 2003 and 2006, respectively. He continued with his post doctoral study the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute between 2006 and 2007 and joined the Department of Mechatronics Engineering at Sabanci University, Istanbul in Fall 2007.

Current Research Activities

Ali Kosar is one of few pioneers in the design and development of new generation micro heat sinks and microfluidic devices. His research interests constitute a wide spectrum covering MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems), heat and fluid flow in micro/nano scale, forced convection, two-phase flow, and cavitation. He aims at contributing to the literature by removing the lack of information about micro/nano scale heat transfer and fluid flow and providing experimental data and design guidelines for futuristic cooling technologies. He has expertise in experimental methods in heat and fluid flow and phase change phenomena in micro/nano scale. He is seeking for enhancing the scientific knowledge in heat and fluid flow in micro/nano domains. The results of his research have already generated numerous journal research articles which have been published in prestigious journals like Journal of Heat Transfer, Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems and International Journal of Heat Transfer.
