Dr. G. Güven Yapıcı 

Güney Güven Yapıcı
Dr. Yapıcı is the principal investigator of MEMFIS at Ozyegin University. After finishing undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering at Bogazici University, he moved to U.S. and received his doctorate in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University in 2007. During graduate studies, Dr. Yapıcı focused on the fabrication and microstructural design of advanced materials via severe plastic deformation techniques. His research interests lie in the area of processing-microstructure-property relationships of structural and smart materials through experimental investigation and computational modeling of the material behavior at micro and nano scale. Design for manufacturing and product development methodologies are his other interest areas. Dr. Yapıcı conducted studies on crystal plasticity modeling at the Materials Science and Technology division of Los Alamos National Laboratory. Before joining academia, he held research and engineering positions in energy industry specializing in the design of actuation systems for high technology downhole tools in extreme conditions. He authored several publications in peer-reviewed journals and presented at numerous international symposia.
