I am a research assistant in Department of Mechatronics at Yildiz Technical University in Istanbul, Turkey. I received my Bachelor’s, MSc and PhD Degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Dumlupinar University (2008), Istanbul Technical University (2010) and Yildiz Technical University (2015) respectively. I am currently studying on Theory of Mechanics, System Dynamics and Control.

Objective of the Mechatronics department at Yildiz Technical University is to graduate prospective students who are able to facilitate and develop high technology with the cooperation of reputable and significant academic staff and by the support of evolving infrastructure.

I am happy to participate in this distinguished department. I mostly enjoy to instruct and supervise in laboratory sessions of classes on manufacturing, control and mechatronics.

You can find the details of my researches, publications and personal information in this site.

I sincerely welcome you to my personal web site.
