Personal profile

Current teaching activities and interests

In 2018-2019 academic year, I taught "Creative Coding" (3rd year, Level 9), "Digital Imaging" (1st year, Level 7) and "Technologies for Digital Art and Design" (1st year, Level 7) modules in BA (Hons) Digital Art & Design (DAAD) programme at UWS. I also supervised Art & Design Research Dissertations of several final year (Level 10) undergraduate students of DAAD programme.

Area of academic expertise - outline

I received my PhD degree from Highwire Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) at Lancaster University in 2017. My PhD thesis, "Visualisations and Interaction Gestures: Enhancing the Football Watching Experience via Second Screen", was an interdisciplinary project which involved the disciplines of graphic design, interaction design, human-computer interaction. It was supervised by Dr Emmanuel Tsekleves from Imagination Design Lab of Lancaster University and Prof Andreas Mauthe from Universität Koblenz-Landau.

Prior to PhD, I completed MRes in Digital Innovation in Highwire CDT.  In my MRes final project which was equivalent to MRes dissertation, I conducted an evaluation study for the user experience of an interactive visualisation project, Emoto2012, that aimed to visualise the emotional response to 2012 London Olympics. 

Before MRes, I completed MA in Visual Arts & Visual Communication Design (VACD) at Sabancı University (SU) in Istanbul, Turkey in 2007. In my practice-based MA thesis, I created a universal visual identity and theme for a virtual football team that has an association with a certain local culture in Turkey. For the thesis, I designed a broad range of visual material that included corporate identity design, merchandise design and digital design including web design and an animated TV spot. I was interviewed by Icon Magazine (Turkish Edition) and was approached by SkyTurk TV channel in Turkey for a talk regarding my MA thesis in their weekly art program.

Current research activities

I am working on journal and conference papers that are based on my previous research activities for publication.

Desired research direction

Designing for multi-screen experiences is my first desired research direction.  For this, I aim to build further on my previous PhD research and aim to focus on how multi-screen experiences can be designed in different media, environments, sports, forms of visualisations and interactions.

My second desired research area is enhancing people's well-being and awareness through information design.
