Engineer, researcher, designer, creator, dedicated to exploring new forms of design through state of the art technologies.
I completed my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Oregon State University in June 2019, where I worked for the Design Engineering Lab under the supervision of Dr. Irem Y. Tumer and Dr. Onan Demirel. My research involves the development of a design tool capable of identifying user-system interactions while detecting possible failure modes scenarios caused by user errors during the early design stages using machine learning and data mining techniques.
My work is in engineering design, especially in implementing design methods with computational approaches to develop products and systems that include human needs, capabilities, and limitations during early design stages. I’m interested in machine learning, data mining, database management, manufacturing, and sustainable design. My research involves developing design methods to identify user-system interactions while detecting possible failure modes caused by user errors during the early design stages using AI.
My current work as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Penn State University focuses on bringing together engineering design and human psychology perspectives to investigate humans and computers’ collaboration as a hybrid team. My work focuses on identifying attributes that can enhance both humans and computers’ complementary nature to solve complex design problems. In this research, I am collaborating with experts from THRED Lab, the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) at Penn State, and Carnegie Mellon University. Together, we are developing a collaborative design platform to examine the formation, interaction, influence, and performance of human teams co-operating with computational agents towards the design of complex systems.
I have experience working with Human Factors, Machine learning & Data mining, Robotics, Design Process, Decision Making, Risk Analysis, Design Optimization, CAD Systems, and Coding.
I am particularly interested in applying collaborative design environments and their contributions to the development of small and large-scale engineering systems. I am passionate about the potential of science and technology to inspire creative design solutions. I am curious about the innovative uses of technology, especially to transform education and culture.
