prof. Ülkühan Güler has recently received the National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award. The subject of the award is the Noninvasive Miniaturized Blood Gas Sensor for Respiratory Monitoring.
Considering the current Covid-19 process, the meaning of the award becomes clear once again.
Brief Information About the Content of the Award
The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards to support early career faculty members who have the potential to serve and lead as academic role models in research and education.
Activities conducted by early career faculty should establish a solid foundation for lifelong leadership in integrating education and research. NSF encourages the submission of CAREER offers from early career faculties at all CAREER-eligible organizations and particularly encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups and people with disabilities to apply.

From Ülkühan Güler's Own Notes
My research interests are in the field of large circuits and systems and my primary interest is analog/mixed signal integrated circuits. More specifically, I am interested in the circuit design of sensing interfaces and energy harvesting and wireless power transmission systems for applications in IoT.
What is IoT?
The Internet of Things (IoT) describes a network of physical objects (“objects”) embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies to exchange and exchange data with and with other devices and systems over the Internet.
If we go back to our teacher's notes;
Exponential increases in demand for next-generation clinical and telemedical diagnostic devices require monitoring and measurement from inside and outside the body via implantable and wearable sensors, which are predicted to be an important pillar of smart healthcare.
My vision is that devices developed to improve our understanding of biophysical processes and contribute to the diagnosis of anomalies will also impact the realization of the next generation of cyber-physical systems.
In line with my vision, my research interests include developing not only secure, smart and connected technologies for healthcare applications, but also general purpose IoT applications.
I also have a few words about my teaching philosophy.
Although everyone calls “creativity and innovation” a cliché, they are the driving forces of academia.
My teaching philosophy is that encouraging creativity by giving students freedom while guiding them with logical, realistic information makes the real difference in their lives.
While our teaching shapes the future of our students, the ultimate goal of teaching in our fast-paced field should be excellent preparation for students' professional lives.
As such, they require exposure to the latest technologies and methodologies used for advancements in the field. The key to developing emerging technologies is to seek them in multidisciplinary applications that can only be achieved through collaborative research on interdisciplinary teams.
I also believe that students who will be involved in technology development studies should interact with other disciplines so that they can do interdisciplinary work for their professional lives.
We too Fizikhaber As his family, we heartily congratulate him.
