Mert Atilhan received his B.S. degree in chemical engineering from Ege University and M.S. (2004) and Ph.D. (2007) degrees in chemical engineering from the Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, USA. Dr. Atilhan is an Adjunct Associate Professor at Texas A&M University at Qatar in Department of Chemical Engineering and he is an affiliated member of the Gas and Fuels Research Center (GFRC) at Texas A&M University at College Station. He has been active in the fields of applied and computational thermodynamics with the emphasis on novel materials for energy and environmental related fields. His research activities are mainly focused on very high accuracy property measurements including PVT-density-viscosity of complex fluids, equation of sate development for pure and mixture gases, vapor-liquid equilibrium systems, natural gas hydrate equilibrium systems and hydrate inhibition via kinetic and thermodynamic inhibitors, ionic liquids properties and their utilization in various engineering applications and development of high-stability and high-capacity novel gas storage sorbents. Dr. Atilhan has authored more than 130 publications and he secured more than $8 million research funding through various funding agencies in Qatar, USA and EU. He was honored with “Research Award” twice in 2008 and 2011 and “Research & Teaching Award” in 2016 at Qatar University and “Elsevier-Scopus Best Researcher of the Year” award in 2015.
