Dr. Ramazan Ünal is currently an Assistant Professor in Mechanical Engineering Department at Özyeğin University. He received his Ph.D. from University of Twente in January 2014 for the design and control of energy-recycling transfemoral prosthesis. During his Ph.D. he has worked as a junior researcher in both Biomechanical Engineering (BME) and Robotics And Mechatronics (RAM) research groups. He received his M.Sc. from Sabanci University for the design optimization and control of parallel structured haptic exoskeleton for wrist rehabilitation in Human Machine Interaction Laboratory, 2008. He received his B.Sc. from Yildiz Technical University in Mechanical Engineering with major in Automotive, 2005. He worked as a post-doc researcher for design and development of actuation systems for lower limb exoskeletons in Robotics & Multi-body Mechanics (R&MM) group at Vrije Universiteit Brussels (2014-2016). There he was involved with one European and one national research projects for the design and development of robotic exoskeletons. After returning to Turkey, he has worked as an Assistant Professor at Abdullah Gul University in Mechanical Engineering Department and also become a Faculty Board Member. There, he continued his research on robotic exoskeletons and prosthetics with TUBITAK and AGU-SRP funded projects.
