Çağdaş Topçu received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering (control and automation speciality) from Yıldız Technical University and his master’s degree in electrical and electronics engineering from Akdeniz University.
Between 2013 and 2015 he worked as a research scientist on the project “Rehabilitation of patients with arm and face transplantation and trauma patients with functional electrical stimulation” with professors of plastic and reconstructive surgery, neurology and electrical and electronics engineering.
In May 2016, he started his PhD project titled “Exploring cardiac phase response curve in health prognoses” and it is jointly supervised by Prof. Maximilian Moser at Medizinischen Universität Graz and Professors Michael Rosenblum and Arkady Pikovsky at Universität Potsdam.
