Onur Parlak earned his PhD in Bioelectronics from Linköping University in 2015. He then received a Fellowship from The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW) and started postdoctoral research at Stanford University, focusing on wearable bioelectronics. After spending three years, he turned back to Sweden and joined the Karolinska Institutet to translate his engineering skills into medical settings with KAW starting grant.
He has been recently awarded by KI Central Funding as an Assistant Professor and research group leader as a part of the KI investment program to recruit and support leading junior researchers with particularly outstanding scientific merits and future potential. Since 2021, Dr. Parlak has been acting as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Medicine, Solna, Dermatology and Venereology Unit in Karolinska Institutet where he specializes in personalized diagnostics and wearable bioelectronics.
