About Me

I received my PhD in Mechatronics Engineering from Sabancı University, Turkey in 2012. I have been working as an Instructor at Istanbul Technical University (ITU) in Mechanical Engineering Department since 2012.

My lab is called "Flexible Systems Laboratory" and my research interests are developing soft robots, soft/flexible sensors and actuators, and advanced control theories. Besides the academic research, I teach undergraduate courses under Mechanical Engineering Department and graduate courses under Mechatronics Graduate Programme in ITU.
