Honoring Ekmel Ozbay, Bilkent University

Submitted by Semih Cakmakyapan, UCLA

I would like to thank my PhD advisor Prof. Ekmel Ozbay for his guidance and support. He showed me I could achieve more than I ever imagined. The first time we met in 2008 was truly a life changing moment on my side. I feel privileged to start my career in his lab and I will always be indebted to him for his invaluable contributions in my life.
