Biography

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ali Erçin Ersundu was born in 1982 in Istanbul. He received his undergraduate degree from Istanbul Technical University, Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering in 2005. He later completed his master's and doctoral studies in Istanbul Technical University, Graduate School, Materials Science and Engineering program in 2007 and 2013, respectively. During his doctoral studies, he worked as a visiting researcher at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Department of Materials Science and Engineering. In 2014, he started to work as a faculty member in the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at Yıldız Technical University. He was awarded the title of associate professor in 2018. He continues to carry out his research at the Glass Research Laboratory of which he is the co-founder.


Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ali Erçin Ersundu has carried out a wide range of pioneering studies on the development and integration of glass and glass-ceramic-based materials especially for energy and communication systems. Recently, he focused on glass and glass nanocomposites with color conversion properties and by synthesizing different lanthanide ions and quantum dots directly in glass matrices he was able to completely cut off their contact with the external environment, thus preventing their stability and degradation problems, preserving their luminous properties for a long time and expanding their application areas. With his pioneering work in this field, he paved the way for the integration of glass and glass nanocomposites with color conversion properties into new generation opto-electronic and photonic applications such as, solid-state lighting (LED), three-dimensional volumetric display, optical temperature sensor and anti-counterfeiting.



In addition to his research-development and education-training activities, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ali Erçin Ersundu has also been working as the Director of Yıldız Technical University Science and Technology Application and Research Center (Central Research Laboratory) since September 2021.


In 2021, he was deemed worthy of the Turkish Academy of Sciences (TÜBA)-Outstanding Young Scientist (GEBİP) award and became a member of the TÜBA Young Academy. Ali Erçin Ersundu is married with one little boy.
