BiographyFollowing my graduation from METU, Architecture Department in 2009, I received my Master’s (2012) and PhD degrees (2018) from the same institution. My graduate studies were fully supported by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK). For the 2015-2016 education year, I have been granted with Fulbright PhD Dissertation Research Grant and conducted my PhD research at Columbia University GSAPP as a visiting scholar. I have completed my PhD studies in October 2018 with a dissertation titled "An Agentic Account of Design Intentionality in Computational Architecture".
Between 2009 and 2018, I worked as a research assistant at METU Department of Architecture and taught undergrad architectural courses, which expanded my architectural design capacity and teaching facilities, especially in architectural design studios. For the 2018-2019 academic year, I thought Architectural Design Studios at METU and TED University as an adjunct faculty.
Along with my academic and educational career, my experience includes practice in architecture through national and international competitions, some of which were received awards. I am also experienced as an architectural photographer; I have both serviced for architectural firms and art galleries, and photographed for artistic purposes. My photographic work has been exhibited in solo and mixed shows, and published in various media, including well-known Turkish architectural magazines.
My research mostly focuses on architectural design theory and methods, computational architecture, design creativity and representation.
