Dr. Dogan Kaya is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Physics at Cukurova University in Adana, Turkey.
Dr. Kaya obtained his both B.S. degrees in Physics (first rank) and in Mathematics from Cukurova University in Adana, Turkey in 2007, and his M.Sc. degree from the Department of Physics at Texas A&M University, Texas, USA in 2012. The master project was mainly about magnetic nanomaterials for magnetoresistive sensor technology. He moved to the United Kingdom for studying in Nanoscale Physics Research Laboratory (NPRL) at the University of Birmingham and obtained his Ph.D. degree in 2016 under the supervision of Prof. Richard E. Palmer and Assoc. Dr. Quanmin Guo. His doctoral work was high-resolution atomic and molecular imaging and manipulation of individual molecules using ultra-high vacuum Scanning Tunneling Microscopy. After Ph.D., he continued his research in NPRL as a Postdoc. and worked on self-assembled monolayers on Au(111) surface and Fullerene molecules on Graphene surface.
Currently, he works on nanoparticles and their application in magnetic media and catalysis.
