Who am I?

I am currently a post-doctoral researcher in the Haptic Intelligence Department of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (Stuttgart, Germany). I will be working as an Assistant Professor in the Cognitive Robotics Department of the Delft University of Technology (the Netherlands) from September 2020.

My research focuses on designing haptic devices and applications by considering the capabilities of human haptic perception. For more details, please check my research page or list of publications.


I earned my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from KoƧ University (Istanbul, Turkey) in January of 2018. Before my Ph.D., I worked as a control engineer at TNO Additive Manufacturing Department in Eindhoven (the Netherlands). I received my M.Sc. degree in Systems and Control at the Eindhoven University of Technology (the Netherlands) in 2012, and my B.Sc degree in Mechatronics Engineering from Sabanci University (Istanbul, Turkey) in 2010.
