Currently, I am working as a senior lecturer in the Interior Design Department at Raffles College of Higher Education. Before, I worked as an adjunct lecturer at NYIT, Abu Dhabi, and teaching assistant and instructor at Istanbul Technical University (I.T.U) for eleven years. Throughout these experiences, I have been responsible for the courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels. I hold an undergraduate degree in Architecture from ITU . Additionally, I was awarded my Ph.D. by the Department of History of Art at ITU. I completed my Masters' degree in Industrial Design at ITU in 2007. My current research interests lie in a wide range of interior design topics; such as furniture design, adaptive reuse, cinematic space, interior design history, spatial narrative, domestic interiors, cultural aspects, handcrafting, and semiotics. Having an architecture degree allowed me to deal with environmental factors and to understand building structure, technics, and logic. My industrial design master's degree helped me to understand the smaller scale and develop a human-centered design approach.
