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 current work as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Penn State University focuses on bringing together perspectives from engineering design and human psychology to investigate the interaction of human-computer hybrid teams. My work focuses on identifying attributes that can enhance the complementary nature of both humans and computers working together 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 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.
