Ugur Sonmez

Research interests

Thermal-diffusivity-based frequency references and temperature sensors


U─čur Sonmez was born in Istanbul, Turkey on 3 April 1986, and graduated from the Uskudar American Academy high school in 2004. He obtained B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in electronics from Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey in 2008 and 2011, respectively. His M.Sc. thesis was on readout circuits for capacitive MEMS accelerometers. In August 2011, he joined the Electronic Instrumentation Laboratory, where he is currently working towards a PhD in the area of thermal-diffusivity-based frequency references and temperature sensors. His non-research interests currently include cycling, music and high fidelity music reproduction, history, mythology, and table-top RPGs.
