I’m currently a Master of Architecture candidate at Columbia GSAPP, a Fulbright Scholar, a research assistant at the Center for Spatial Research, and an Architect/Design Technologist at Kohn Pedersen Fox. I like computers, spontaneous CitiBike rides, and summer picnics in the Park.

I hold a Bachelor of Architecture and a BSc in Interior Architecture from Istanbul Technical University. I also studied abroad in Auburn University and in Lahti Polytechnic University in Finland. I won multiple design competitions, worked at various international practices such as Gensler, KPF, RMJM, and Archi-Tectonics, and received several grants and awards - most recently a Fulbright Scholarship, for my master-level studies in architecture and computer science.

Last year, I’ve launched Adjacent with Jacob Kackley, a student organization at Columbia where we bring architecture students with people doing diverse and exciting things out in the world! Architects are trained to craft solutions to any given design problem, and Adjacent is here to help GSAPP students to figure out the things they are intrigued to create solutions for!
