Tuncay Alan is senior lecturer at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Monash University. His research focuses on the interaction of micro/nanoscale resonators with flowing fluid media. He is currently leading the Dynamic Micro Devices Laboratory, which combines nanofabrication, acoustics and fundamental mechanics for controlled synthesis of materials and personalised drug delivery.

Tuncay received his PhD from Cornell University, US. He held postdoctoral positions at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, and University College London, UK. In 2015, he spent six months as a visiting scientist at the Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland. As a senior fellow at the Collegium Helveticum, Tuncay will explore new technologies to examine the nucleation and early-stage growth of nanomaterials.
