Biography

I have associated with the Istanbul Technical University as a student since undergraduate (with ITU Achievement Scholarship) and as a research & teaching assistant since 2014. I completed my MSc thesis that is titled ‘Imaginative Future Speculations in Architectural Design: An Experiment of the Intertemporal Disassembly’ in 2017. The thesis was also supported by the ITU Scientific Research Projects Program. Currently, I am the PhD Candidate on the Architectural Design Program (with The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) 2211-A National Scholarship Programme for PhD Students).

Personally and as a team member, I participated into various architectural competitions and awarded from some are the Lixil International (in Japan), Pamukkale University Architecture Faculty (PAUAF), New Martyrs Memorials in Gelibolu Historic Area and Bornova Municipality Architectural Design Competitions, Archiprix Turkey 2014 Graduation Projects Competition. Due to the awarded as 1st from PAUAF architectural design competition, we were completed the construction project in 2017. 

I was in the organization team of ‘Visionary Design and Architecture’ pop-up exhibition and panel in Studio-X Istanbul, 2018 and ArchED Architecture Students Award, 2019-2020. Our scientific article with Zeliha Bayrakçı titled 'The Potential for Collectively Produced Architectural Narratives: from the Market to Education in the Design Studio' has published in the International Journal of Art & Design Education (Volume 39, Issue 2)
