Cemile Aksu


I am a Ph.D. student in Fiber and Polymer Science at NC State. I came to NC State after receiving an M.S. in Textile Engineering in my native Turkey. During the summer of 2017 I interned in Microsoft’s applied sciences group where I worked on several innovation projects and was able to develop my communication and teamwork skills. In addition, I have worked in the College of Textiles’ weaving lab where I work on industry projects.   My current research interests are in 3D patterning of metal oxides-carbon nanotube structures and their applications in microfluidics. Besides doing research and experiments, I enjoy hiking and traveling.

Research Interests:

Material Characterization, Nanomaterials, Thin Films and Nanotechnology, Microfluidics

Current Research:

Her research focuses on 3D patterning of ultralight porous metal oxide and MWCNT macro-structures and their applications in microfluidics. She will study how to conduct and fully understand this new application area of 3D patterning of microporous materials.
