Director, Systems Engineering

BioVitesse, Inc.

Developed the control and measurement system for rapid detection of live bacteria. The accomplishments included design and development of electronics circuitry and printed circuit boards, development of the prototype software, development of the system architectures and supporting the implementation while interfacing and coordinating with software and hardware engineers, device engineers and mechanical engineers in addition to potential customers and venture capitalists. The system architecture included microfluidics valves, pumps, mechanical slides, pressure and flow sensors on the fluidics side and off-the-shelf controller boards, custom boards for control and measurements and wiring on the electronics side. During this time, work was closely coordinated with mechanical design of the system enclosure and testing of the system was part of the responsibilities both in the lab and customer environments. Further accomplishments included development and maintenance of licensed and company intellectual property including patent applications and responses to office actions in cooperation with patent attorneys and other inventors.

“Bahadir's strong analytical skills and his ability to delve into the root of a problem without losing track of the big picture make him an excellent engineer and problem solver.”

Peter Newton

“Bahadir was one of the best engineers that I worked with at AMD. Aside from finding creative solutions to challenging technical problems, he was always thinking about how to improve the overall product from a customer's perspective. He had all kinds of suggestions for improving performance, usability and cost, which made him a great asset. More importantly, he approached all issues and discussions with enthusiastic and cheerful optimism, improving the morale of the team and keeping the work atmosphere positive. I would both highly recommend him and gladly work with him again.”

Ching Yu

“Bahadir and I worked together at AMD in the Network Products Division. He was an outstanding and invaluable engineer. Bahadir excels in his own work as well as taking an active role in the overall welfare of the project and the team. He is highly technically capable and well trained at handling all aspects of ASIC design. Bahadir is very practical-minded and is good at applying his skillset in creating simple and yet elegant and always user-friendly solutions to problems. He works extremely well with everyone in the team and is truly caring and considerate. Bahadir will prove to be an extremely valuable asset in any company and will contribute substantially to its success.”

Laila Razouk

“Bahadir is simply one of the best! He is very capable individual with a well diverse areas of technical expertise at the architecture, chip, board, system, and software level. He also has a unique skill in the IP/patent area. In addiion to his technical knowledge, he is an excellent team player, very flexible, and very pleasant to work with. I'm fortunate to have him working wih me now in BioVitesse.”
