He graduated from the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Middle East Technical University (METU) in 2001. In 2004, he successfully completed his master's thesis at the METU Institute of Natural and Applied Sciences, titled "Carbon dioxide removal in steam reforming: Adsorption of CO2 onto hydrotalcite and activated soda." In 2010, he pursued his research on mathematical modeling and simulation of PEM fuel cells at the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Kansas under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Trung Van Nguyen. In 2011, he successfully completed his doctoral thesis at the METU Institute of Natural and Applied Sciences with the research titled "Electrocatalyst development and modeling of nonisothermal two-phase flow for PEM fuel cells." He obtained the title of Assistant Professor in 2015 and was appointed as an Associate Professor in March 2022. Currently, he continues his academic career as an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Ondokuz Mayıs University, specializing in Thermodynamics and Energy Technology.

At the undergraduate level, he teaches Mathematical Modeling in Chemical Engineering, Chemical Reaction Engineering, Thermodynamics, and Linear Algebra Applications in Engineering in the field of Chemical Engineering. At the graduate level, he offers courses in Advanced Thermodynamics, Transport Phenomena, Advanced Reaction Engineering, Fuel Cells, and Advanced Numerical Methods for Engineering. His research primarily focuses on redox flow batteries (H2/Br, V/V, PSB, V/H2 Fe/Cr, etc.). Additionally, he conducts research on hydrogen production, PEM fuel cells, NaS batteries, and the modeling of electrochemical systems. In recent years, he has been conducting research on the design and development of PEM electrolyzers.
