Prof. Dr. Miray Çelikbilek Ersundu received her BSc, MSc and PhD degrees from Istanbul Technical University, Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering in 2008, 2009 and 2013, respectively. In 2014, she started to work as a faculty member in the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at Yildiz Technical University. She was awarded the title of associate professor and full professor in 2018 and 2023, respectively. She continues to carry out her research at the Glass Research Laboratory of which she is the co-founder.


Prof. Dr. Miray Çelikbilek Ersundu is in the vision of developing solutions for the main problems of today's world such as, energy efficiency, recycling, and carbon emissions, by using the new generation glass and glass-ceramics developed for many advanced technological application areas. Recently, she has focused on glass and glass nanocomposites with color conversion properties, and by synthesizing lanthanides and quantum dots together directly in thermally and chemically durable glass matrices, she prevented the stability and decay problems of quantum dots and ensured that the light properties were preserved for a long time. She paved the way for the integration of glass and glass nanocomposites into next-generation opto-electronic and photonic applications such as solid-state lighting (LED), luminescent solar concentrators for use in building integrated photovoltaics, three-dimensional volumetric displays, optical temperature sensors and anti-counterfeiting applications.


To date, Prof. Dr. Miray Çelikbilek Ersundu has worked as the principal investigator in 5 TUBITAK (1 International), 1 Ministry of Industry, 1 KOSGEB, 16 BAP projects, and as a researcher in 1 Horizon Europe, 7 TUBITAK (1 International), 1 KOSGEB and 11 BAP projects. She has 50 articles published in internationally indexed journals, 3 international book chapters, 77 international and 7 national conference presentations. As of August 2023, her articles were cited 1888 times according to the Google Scholar citation index (h-index 23), and 1447 times according to the web of science index (h-index 21). In addition, she has 3 national and international patent applications that are still under examination. 

In 2022, she was deemed worthy of the Turkish Academy of Sciences (TÜBA)-Outstanding Young Scientist (GEBİP) award and became a member of the TÜBA Young Academy.


Miray Çelikbilek Ersundu is married and has one little boy named Demir.
