I am a PhD fellow in Design, Technology and Society, affiliated with Koç University's Graduate School of Social Sciences and Humanities, Qualisys AB, and Chalmers University of Technology's t2i Interaction Laboratory.
I previously took part in founding the Koç University Design Lab and the Koç University - Arçelik Research Center for Creative Industries, and contributed design, software, and business projects to a variety of startups, SMEs, and non-profits.
My research, mainly within Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Interaction Design (IxD), focuses on three topics:
Gestural Interaction: Concepts and tools for utilizing space and human senses expansively to interact with computers.
Longevous Computing: Digital artifacts designed to be cherished and to preserve their value over the long run.
Social Drones: Well-designed interactions with autonomous flyers, for both users and bystanders.
