Hi! I am
a design researcher who works on human-centred design of personal health technologies.
Currently, I am an assistant professor of Interaction Design at the University of Twente.
I have an Industrial Design background. I have a PhD degree from Middle East Technical University (METU) of Turkey. I worked as a researcher at METU, Department of Industrial Design and Product Usability Testing Unit (UTEST) for several years.
I also worked as an assistant professor at TOBB University of Economics and Technology (Ankara, Turkey), where I was granted two TUBITAK (Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey) Research Fundings.
During my PhD, I was granted with Fulbright PhD Student Scholarship, and I studied at Carnegie Mellon University, Human-Computer Interaction Institute (USA).
