Ömer Can Akgün was born in İstanbul, Turkey, in 1980. He got his B.Sc. degree in electronics and telecommunication engineering from Istanbul Technical University, Turkey in 2002. He received his M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Ohio State University, USA in 2004, and the Ph.D. degree in microelectronics from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland in 2009. He worked as a post-doctoral researcher at Lund University, Sweden until March 2010. In 2011, he started a digital sub-threshold consulting/design company, MystIC Microelectronics, with a start-up grant from Turkish Ministry of Science, and began working as an assistant professor at Ozyegin University until June 2012. In 2017 he obtained a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Individual Fellowship (IF), and through the fellowship he currently holds a postdoctoral researcher position at the Bioelectronics Group of TU Delft.

He is experienced in multiple domains of IC design, namely analogue, digital and mixed-signal circuits. His research interests are asynchronous and sub-threshold operation, asynchronous information-to-digital conversion, time-mode signal processing, bioelectronics and analog/mixed-signal modelling and design automation. He is currently investigating time-mode asynchronous signal processing systems and their applications to neural recording interfaces as part of the MSCA-IF.
