Aykut Argun defended his Master thesis entitled "NON-BOLTZMANN STATIONARY DISTRIBUTIONS AND NON-EQUILIBRIUM RELATIONS IN ACTIVE BATHS" on 29th of September, 2016. Assoc. Prof. Gökhan Barış Bağcı (TOBB University), Assist. Prof. Giovanni Volpe (Bilkent University) and Dr. Seymur Jahangirov (Bilkent University) participated as thesis committee members.

In his studies about thermodynamics in living media, he investigated the properties of non-equilibrium relations in active baths where motile bacteria are present. The results point out that there is a need for alternative models that explicitly model non-thermal fluctuations emerging from active systems.
