Mustafa Akbulut

Dr. Akbulut has been an Assistant Professor of the Department of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University since 2009. He attended Bogazici University, Turkey where he obtained his Bachelor’s Degrees (2001) in Chemical Engineering and Chemistry. He undertook his PhD in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His PhD research focused on the inter-nanoparticle forces between various types of nanoparticles and how these forces play an essential role in their assembly into hierarchical structures. Subsequently, he joined the Princeton University as a postdoctoral researcher to conduct research on various aspects of soft-condensed matter such as polymeric nanoparticulate for drug delivery systems, stabilization of nanoparticles, and kinetics of the nucleation and growth of polymeric nanoparticles. He is a recipient of ACS-PRF Young Investigator Award and Mitsubishi Distinguished Graduate Student Award. His group currently conducts a broad range of research activities in the area of interfacial phenomena in nanotechnology and biotechnology. Dr. Akbulut has 12 years of experience in the area of surface and interface science; and over 25 publications in various interfacial-phenomena related journals including top-notch journals such as Nature Materials, Advance Materials, and Nanoletters. He is enthusiastically following the current research in interfacial phenomena and actively involved in organizing the fundamentals of interfacial phenomena sessions at annual AICHE meetings since two years.
