Bahadır Dönmez is a senior at the Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkey where he is majoring in electrical & electronics engineering with a specialization in solid state electronics. Furthermore, he is pursuing a second major in physics.
Born in Erzincan, Turkey, in 1995, Bahadır Dönmez began to show an interest in building things at age 4. As a kid he was attracted to Lego bricks, magnets and toy train engines. His childhood curiosity has evolved into a passion for engineering and science as he started to learn physics and maths in high school.
The combination of his strong desire to advance technology to help humanity and insatiable hunger for understanding how the universe works led him to choose a field of study that incorporates both engineering and physics. In the future he hopes to go to graduate school to follow up on his innate enthusiasm for research and pursue a PhD.
When he is not busy with learning quantum mechanics or nanoelectronics he enjoys working out at the gym, coding, learning French, reading history, watching TED Talks and having coffee with friends.
