I am a Ph.D. candidate in Architectural Design Computation program at Istanbul Technical University. I am also working as a Research Assistant in ITU Faculty of Architecture.

I live to leave a mark with the stories I tell and the designs I create. Architecture is my playground where I tell stories by designing environments. And video games, a medium for spatial storytelling, are where the stories I tell become alive and immersive.
