Onur has recently graduated from the University of Brighton with a first-class honours degree in MEng Automotive Engineering, where he investigated Characteristics of Nanofluid Sprays and their Cooling Performance on a piston surface. A poster produced from the findings of this study was presented at the 29th European Conference on Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems (ILASS). Furthermore, during his studies, he had a chance to work in an electric vehicle conversion project where he focused on designing the thermal management system. The AAPS CDT provided the perfect opportunity to investigate these two areas of interest further in a collaborative and innovative environment. As an AAPS CDT student, he will be carrying out research in the area of Leidenfrost propulsion for cooling flows in AM parts. Outside of the University, he is a passionate racing and a football fan.
