Arif Mustafazade
Assistant Professor 

Arif Mustafazade started his interest in electronics in the elementary school. Later in his high school years, he worked on design of analog and logic circuits, measurement instruments, and Phase-Locked-Loops (PLL). This led to his collaboration with industry which continued during his university education as the Electrical and Electronics Engineering department of Tabriz Azad University. After receiving his BS degree in the year 2000, he developed interest in digital photography and started working on the measurement of image quality factors in digital cameras. He continued his research on this topic as a master’s student at Marmara University’s Faculty of Fine Arts in photography from where he graduated in 2008.

Between 2008 and 2010, he pursued his studies in the field of optics at Koç University, working on solid-state femtosecond lasers as a master’s student of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. This followed his work in optical MEMS sensors which constituted the main subject of his Ph.D. thesis. During the last two years of his Ph.D., he worked as a principle design engineer and project manager at GAMAK Motors company, the largest manufacturer of electric motors in Turkey focusing on design and modelling of industrial motor drives and power systems.

After receiving his Ph.D. in 2016, he moved to United Kingdom and started working on MEMS gravity sensors as a post-doctoral researcher at University of Cambridge. He contributed to this project by designing ultra-high-precision analog circuits for signal conditioning and implementing advanced measurement and control methods, as well as thermal and mechanical designs. These led to huge improvements in this project in a very short period. In 2018, he joined as the lead design engineer at Silicon Microgravity Limited Company which was established for the same project. Taking a decision to return to Turkey in 2020, he joined the Electrical and Electronics Engineering department of MEF University and will start as an assistant professor.

Research Interests: Analog Circuits, Solid-State Lasers, MEMS Sensors, Control, Measurement Systems, and Metrology.

Asst. Prof. Dr. Yusuf Aydın received his B.Sc. dual degree in mechanical engineering and electrical and electronics engineering, and then M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from Koc University, Istanbul, in 2011, 2013, and 2019, respectively. His research has contributed to the literature in two parts; he developed (1) a new interaction controller, fractional order admittance controller, which offers a better compromise between transparency and stability robustness for physical Human-Robot Interaction (pHRI) systems, and (2) a multi-criteria optimization framework, which jointly optimizes the stability robustness and transparency of a closed-loop pHRI system for a given interaction controller. He was awarded the prestigious TUBITAK BIDEB fellowship for his graduate studies. Following, he continued conducting research as a postdoctoral researcher at the Robotics and Mechatronics Laboratory at Koc University. In this period, he continued to work as a postdoctoral researcher in a large-scale research project investigating human-robot interaction using machine learning techniques, funded by TUBITAK 1003 program.
