Reaction Chemistry & Engineering Emerging Investigator- Mustafa Kemal Bayazit

Dr Bayazit received his BSc and MSc degrees with honours in Chemistry. He was then awarded a fellowship by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) in 2007 to pursue a PhD at Durham University. In 2010, he joined ICL Chemistry as a PostDoc to research nanostructured hierarchical assemblies and composites. Mustafa moved to UCL Chemical Engineering in 2014. He developed a microwave-fluidic reactor for high throughput fabrication of nanomaterials (e.g. metal/metal oxide NPs and graphene) and used them in solar-to-energy applications. In 2019, he moved to Sabanci University Nanotechnology Research and Application Center, where he is currently an Associate Professor in Materials Science and Nanoengineering ( His research focuses on high throughput sustainable manufacturing of advanced inorganic/organic and inorganic/inorganic hybrids for energy materials, sensors, and functional surfaces. He is the recipient of TUBITAK 2232-A International Fellowship for Outstanding Researchers (2019), the finalist of the IChemE Global Research Project Awards (2022), a recipient of the COMSTECH Award (2022), and contributing team member of the IChemE Global Business Start-up Award (2019). He is also a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
