Hilmi Volkan Demir received his B.Sc. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from Bilkent University
(one of the top ranking engineering schools in Turkey) in 1998, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering
from Stanford University, CA, in 2000 and 2004, respectively. Since September 2004, he has been working as a faculty member
at Bilkent University (his alma mater), where he presently holds appointments as a full Professor jointly
at the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE), the Department of Physics (PHYS), and the Materials Science and Nanotechnology
Graduate Program (MSN). He is also a faculty member of UNAM – The National Nanotechnology Research Center (nanomaterial growth
and synthesis, nanofabrication, nanocharacterization). He has been appointed as Director of The National Nanotechnology Research Center of Turkey - UNAM
at Bilkent University and serves as Head of the Institute of Materials Science and Nanotechnology and Chair of the MSN Graduate Program.
At Bilkent University, he developed the color science and related technologies of nanocrystal quantum emitters and produced a portfolio of
inventions and patents in the field of narrow-band nanoemitters for high-quality and high-performance LED lighting and displays.
His current research interests include the science and technology of semiconductor lighting and displays; nanocrystal optoelectronics; excitonics for high-efficiency light generation and harvesting;
and wireless in vivo sensing and smart implants for future healthcare. Demir has published over 300 top-tier peer-reviewed SCI journal publications,
120 of which belong to Nature Index Journals and 80 of which have an impact factor of 10 or above (including Advanced Materials,
Advanced Functional Materials, Nano Letters, ACS Nano, Nature Photonics, Nature Physics, Nature Communications, JACS, JPCL, Nano Today, Applied Physics Letters),
with over 1,500 citations per annum. His current H-index is 62 (Google Scholar), 55 (Scopus) and 53 (Web of Science).
He co-authored a textbook on Applied Nanophotonics (together with S. Gaponenko) published by Cambridge University Press (2018). He has been invited to deliver over
200 invited seminars, lectures and colloquia on the topics of LED lighting, colloidal nanophotonics, in vivo sensing, and nanoparticles research in industry and academia. Dr. Demir has
contributed to commercialization and licensing of various new enabling technologies as well as to establishing 4 successful
companies and has generated over >40 inventions, leading to >130 patent applications as a principal inventor, 12 of which have currently
been used, owned or licensed by the industry. These scientific and entrepreneurship activities resulted in
several important international and national awards including NRF Investigatorship Award, Nanyang Award for Research
Excellence, ESF European Young Investigator Award, TÜBİTAK (Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey) TESVIK Award, and TÜBA (Turkish National Academy of Sciences) GEBİP Award. He has been selected The Outstanding Young
Person in the World (TOYP Award) of Junior Chamber International (JCI) Federation of
Young Leaders and Entrepreneurs Worldwide in the category of academic achievement and leadership.
He is currently the Springer Series Editor of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and was an OSA editor of Optics Express (2014 - 2020). He served as
the Technical Chair (Washington DC 2015), Member-at-Large (Hawaii 2016), and General Chair (San Diego 2017) of the IEEE Photonics
Society's flagship program IEEE Photonics Conference (IPC, formerly LEOS). He is a selected core partner of European Union FP7 Nanophotonics
for Energy Network of Excellence (N4E NoE) and an elected full Member of the TÜBA – Turkish Academy of Sciences. Dr. Demir has been elected as
the Optical Society (OSA) Fellow (class of 2020) and IEEE Fellow (class of 2021), based on his pioneering contributions
in semiconductor nanocrystal optoelectronics, colloidal nanophotonics and lighting. Professor Demir is a recipient of the prestigious TÜBİTAK 2020 Science Award, which is the highest science prize in Turkey.
