About Me


I am a postdoctoral researcher at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Haptic Intelligence Department directed by Dr. Katherine J. Kuchenbecker. I received my Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Koc University (Istanbul, Turkey) in 2018. I received my M.Sc. degree in Computational Mechanics from Technical University of Munich in 2013, where I completed my thesis at BMW Group. I earned my B.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey) in 2011.

My research interests encompass computational mechanics, surface haptics, numerical methods and algorithms, design optimization, vibro-acoustics, and laminated composite materials. For more information about my work please visit Research section.

I have published many peer-reviewed journal articles and conference papers throughout my career. For the complete list of my publications please see Publications page.
