I graduated from METU Department of Industrial Design in 2010.

I completed Industrial Design Master Progamme of ITU in 2015 with my thesis named as “The Place, Imporance and Specifications of Material Knowledge in Industrial Design Education: A Study on Undergraduate Departments in Turkey”.

I worked as a research assistant in ITU Industrial Design Department from 2014 to 2018. I took part in courses, mainly design studios, design thinking and material courses. Afterwards, I worked as a research assistant in Osmaniye Korkut Ata University until January 2022.

For now, I’m working as an assistant professor doctor in Marmara University.

I’m interested in design thinking, material studies, toys, 3D Printing and startups and any other related subjects.
