Dr Aygün is a senior lecturer in acoustics. He is also course leader for MSc Applied Acoustics and admissions tutor for acoustics and media technology courses.

Dr Aygün joined Solent University in September 2012 from the University of Hull. He has a PhD in acoustics and vibration and a MSc in advanced materials, process and manufacturing from the University of Hull, and a BSc in mechanical engineering. Dr Aygün was involved in developing Solent's MSc Applied Acoustics, BEng and MEng Audio and Acoustic Engineering, and BEng Acoustics. 

Dr Aygün is a fellow of the Higher Education Academy, a member of the Institute of Acoustics, a member of the Acoustical Society of America, and a member of the Turkish Acoustical Society. He is a reviewer for the Journal of Applied Acoustics, and Journal of the Acoustical Society of America. He has also supervised undergraduate and postgraduate students and is currently supervising a research assistant investigating structural borne sound waves propagating through bones.
