I’m currently a Master of Architecture candidate at Columbia GSAPP, a Fulbright Scholar, a researcher at Columbia Center for Spatial Research, a Brown Institute for Media Innovation Entrepreneur, and the founder and lead developer of FaultLines, an AI-Powered Geospatial Information Platform. Aside from all of that, I really enjoy making maps, spontaneous CitiBike rides, and creating intricate Spotify playlists. 

 I hold a Bachelor of Architecture and a BSc in Interior Architecture from Istanbul Technical University. I’ve worked at various international practices such as Gensler, Kohn Pedersen Fox, and Archi-Tectonics, won numerous international design competitions, and awarded multiple fellowships, scholarships, grants, and research positions. Most recently, me and Jacob Taylor Sirota (NYU ‘22) won first-place at Columbia University Startup Competition 2024. 

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!
