Dr Oktay Cetinkaya received his BEng degrees (H. Hons.) with a double major in Electrical Engineering & Electronics and Communication Engineering from Yildiz Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey, in 2013 and 2014, respectively. He then started pursuing his PhD degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Koç University, Istanbul, Turkey and was awarded in early 2018. 

After his PhD, he worked as a Research Fellow at the University of Southampton, UK, between 2018 and 2020. Since April 2020, he is a Research Associate at The University of Sheffield, UK. His research interests broadly cover energy harvesting-aided wireless-powered communications for the Internet of Things, on which he has authored more than 25 scientific papers that have been published in highly-respected journals, conference proceedings, and book series.
