Cengiz Ozkan is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at University of California, Riverside. He received his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Stanford University in 1997. Dr. Ozkan’s areas of expertise include nanomaterials for energy storage; synthesis/processing including graphene, 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 and the GrapheneTurkey 2015 Conference in Istanbul; He has more than 200 technical publications including journal papers, conference proceedings and book chapters; over 50 patent disclosures, has given more than 100 presentations worldwide and is the recipient of more than 30 honors and awards. He is a member of the STARnNet Center for Spintronic Materials, Interfaces and Novel Architectures (CSPIN) and the Winston Chung Global Energy Center (WCGEC). 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 nano-silicon from beach sand and silicon dioxide nanotubes; fast charging lithium-ion batteries based on silicon decorated three dimensional nano-carbon architectures; and high performance supercapacitors based on three dimensional graphene foam architectures.
