Biography

Assist. Prof. Dr. Coskun Firat had a BSc degree on Astronomy and Space Sciences at Istanbul University (IU), Science Faculty in 1987 and MSc degree on Nuclear Energy at Istanbul Technical University (ITU) in 1991. He obtained a PhD on “thermodynamical behavior of gases at nanoscale” at ITU in 2007 under the supervision of Prof.Dr. Altug Sisman. In 2008 he had postdoctoral research appointments at SDSU in CA, USA. Between 1993 and 2010 he worked as a research assistant in Nuclear energy and Renewable Energy at Institute of Nuclear Energy and Energy Institute at ITU. In 2010, he was appointed as an assistant professor in Renewable Energy and was lectured on Solar Thermal Power Plants and has been lecturing on Engineering Mathematics for MSc and PhD degrees.
