About Me

Link to CV

I am an interaction/industrial designer and a design researcher. I hold a BSc (2011) in industrial product design from İstanbul Technical University. I currently completed my doctoral studies in interaction design at Koç University Arçelik Research Center for Creative Industries (KUAR), Istanbul. My Ph.D. research focused on design issues around soft wearables. More specifically, I investigated the relationship between fashion and computational materials to design wearable ambient displays for everyday scenarios (i.e., physical exercises). My research has been published in first-tier conferences and journals like CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computer Systems, Designing Interactive Systems (DIS), International Journal of Design and Visual Communication.

When I am not researching and designing stuff, I practice sculpting, create stop motion videos and grow my own food. You can go check my Instagram profile to learn more about the fun activities I do :).
