About Me

I work as a senior user experience designer at SAP Labs Palo Alto. I teach interaction and service design at Stanford’s d.school, and lead workshops & UX design as a part of Stanford’s Legal Design Lab. I hold a Ph.D. in design from Carnegie Mellon University,  an M.F.A. degree in Visual Communication Design from Sabanci University in Istanbul. I am a native of Turkey, from the region Cappadocia, one of the most eccentric sites in the country — and perhaps in the whole region of Eurasia.
