I'm an electrical and electronics engineer graduated in 2007 from Bilkent University with full scholarship. After I have completed my MS degree in 2010 from Bogazici University Biomedical Institute, I have started my own start-up.
My start-up company "Durmaz Technology" has been founded in 2011. We are dealing with developing x-ray systems both on medical and industrial sides.
Our goal is to design more reliable, low dose, high quality x-ray systems, with advanced image processing and decision algorithms. We have currently 3 patent requests, and several articles about the work we have done.
I'm currently a PhD student at Bogazici University Biomedical Engineering Department, currently working on developing new x-ray systems and technologies.
Our startup, Durmaz Technology with D-Tech & DDRLine brands, was founded in 2010. In this short period of time, due to successful administration and partnerships, we have won several national funds and state grants. By these financial supports we have accomplished medical and industrial x-ray imaging devices. As an outcome at the moment our R&D budget is over a million dollar.
On the medical side, we have developed a Portable Dental X-Ray system with very low radiation dosage, and a multiple energy direct x-ray system which provides very detailed anatomical information about the human mouth. Our industrial x-ray device automatically detects and classifies variety of errors and defects (welding, connections, layer shifting etc.) in real time.
During my career I have visited USA several times. First one was in 2005 for a 3 months internship in NYC. I have dealt with construction projects. In 2009 I work as a part of a medical project (which also happens to my master thesis) in NIH Heart & Lung Institute (NHLBI).
Other than the X-Ray R&D we have started on a large education project. An education campus around 17.000 m2 close area on a 32.000 m2 land, including several buildings, conference center & sports center. Hopefully it will be ready for the next education semester (2015-2016).
In 2014 I have won a grant for "best start-up entrepreneurship" from TUBITAK, “Scientific And Technological Research Council Of Turkey”.
