Cengiz S. Ozkan is a Professor of mechanical engineering at the University of California, Riverside, CA, USA. Ozkan received his Ph.D. degree in materials science and engineering from Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA, in 1997. Ozkan's areas of expertise include nanomaterials for energy storage; synthesis/processing including graphene and III–V and II–VI materials; novel battery and supercapacitor architectures; nanoelectronics; biochemical sensors; and nanopatterning for beyond CMOS. He organized and chaired 30 scientific and international conferences, including the MRS Symposium titled De Novo Graphene in April 2014 in San Francisco, CA, USA, and the Graphene Turkey 2015 Conference in Istanbul, Turkey; Ozkan has more than 200 technical publications including journal papers, conference proceedings, and book chapters and over 50 patent disclosures, has given more than 100 presentations worldwide, and is the recipient of more than 30 honors and awards. Moreover, Ozkan is a Member of the StarNET Center for Spintronic Materials, Interfaces, and Novel Architectures (CSPIN), Minneapolis, MN, USA, and the Winston Chung Global Energy Center (WCGEC), Riverside, CA, USA. His important contributions include the first time growth of hierarchical three‐dimensional graphene nanostructures; development of a unique high‐throughput metrology method for large‐area CVD grown graphene sheets; doping and functionalization of CVD grown and pristine graphene layers; study of digital data transmission in graphene and InSb materials; memory devices based on inorganic/organic nanocomposites; novel lithium‐ion batteries based on nanosilicon from beach sand and silicon dioxide nanotubes; fast charging lithium‐ion batteries based on silicon decorated three‐dimensional nanocarbon architectures; and high‐performance supercapacitors based on three‐dimensional graphene foam architectures.
