Bio-sketch  – Asst.Prof.Dr.Savas Dilibal
 After graduation as a system engineer in 1995, he received his Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering Department from Istanbul Technical University in 2003. He designed and produced a smart robotic hand (ITUHand) using NiTi shape memory alloy (SMA) based solid state actuator and sensor systems in his Master’s degree at ITU. He received his PhD in Material Engineering from Yildiz Technical University. During his PhD, he produced NiTi SMA plates using vacuum arc remelting and vacuum induction melting techniques. He also worked on the mechanical characterization of the produced NiTi SMAs. After his PhD, he completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in the Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering in 2010. During his postdoctoral fellowship at UIUC (USA), he focused on the mechanical behavior of NiTi based SMAs. He used a Digital Image Correlation (DIC) technique to obtain full-field strain measurements. One of the significant purposes of his post-doctoral research was to resolve some of the most demanding issues in understanding deformation resistance of shape memory alloys that undergo reversible, thermo-elastic phase transformations.
He worked on a NASA funded project (NASA`s Subsonic Fixed Wing Program – NNX11AI57A) between 2012-2014 as a Research Associate at the University of Akron, OH (USA).He taught Object Oriented Design class in Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Akron, OH. He also worked on the 3D printer manufactured polymer embedded NiTi SMA robotic finger project wıth Dr.Engeberg between Jan and April 2014. He is currently working in Mechatronics Engineering Department at Gedik University. He is also Director of Robot Technology Research and Application Center at Gedik University. He is a member of TMS and ASME.
