Biography

Dr. Kurudirek is a Professor of Physics in Vocational School of Technical Sciences at Ataturk University. Dr. Kurudirek completed his Ph. D in 2011 and his studies fall within the scope of Nuclear Science &Technology. He was awarded to a post doctoral research fellowship by TUBITAK in 2013 and with this fellowship he conducted research on neutron measurements in Georgia Institute of Technology, USA between 2013 and 2015. His primary research interest is based on radiation detection, shielding, dosimetry, development of novel radiation detector materials. He has been an author of over 70 publications most of which were published in SCI indexed journals. He has been awarded several internal awards by Ataturk University between 2010 and 2020. He was awarded as Professor Sevket Erk Young Scientist by Turkish Physical Society in 2011. He took place in PLOS Biology Top Scientists List both in 2020 and 2021. He is currently a Marie-Sklodowska Curie Fellow sponsored by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 program. With his Horizon 2020 funded project, which will be mentored by the world renown scientists from USA and UK, he will focus on developing novel nuclear detector materials based on nanotechnology.
