I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from İstanbul Technical University, and my Ph.D. degree from Purdue University in 2009. During my Ph.D. studies, I was the recipient of Ross Fellowship and Blisland Dissertation Fellowship in 2004 and 2009, respectively. I continued working in the same University as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in 2010, managing the research and implementation projects supported by Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT). I joined MEF University in March 2014 as one of the founding faculty of the Department of Civil Engineering. My research interests include sustainable geotechnics, deep foundations, soil improvement, environmental geotechnics, retaining structures, and earthquake geotechnical engineering. I have been teaching/flipping Calculus, Statics, Introduction to CE, Geology and Soil Mechanics Courses at MEF.
