Ali Kosar got his B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from Bogaziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey, in 2001. Between 2001 and 2006, he pursued his graduate study in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, USA and obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 2003 and 2006, respectively. Kosar worked at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as a Postdoctoral Research Associate and Adjunct Faculty between 2006 and 2007. He joined the Mechatronics Engineering Program at Sabanci University, Istanbul, Turkey in fall 2007. Kosar is one of the few pioneers in the design and development of a new generation microheat sinks and microfluidic devices. His research interests constitute a wide spectrum covering microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), 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 and microfluidic system technologies. He has a broad experience and knowledge in various types of experiments on heat and fluid flow and phase change phenomena in micro-/nano-scale. His research made a significant contribution to the scientific knowledge of heat and fluid flow in micro-/nano-domains.
