Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Research Fellow at the University of Strathclyde working at the GRAPES (learninG, pRocessing, And oPtimising shapES) project.

My work focus on developing intelligent computational design tool for the maritime and mechanical industry. Currently, I am working on creating an AI-assisted design system to help designers and engineers to:

  • generate appearance and performance-driven designs at the conceptual design phase

  • overcome the computational burden of physical computer simulations

Previously, I working with Dr Matteo Deiz at the Institute of Marine Engineering of Italian National Research Council (CNR-INM), Rome, Italy. At CNR-INM my work involved the development of data-driven dimension reduction techniques to accelerate the shape optimization.

From August to December 2019, I visited the Virtual Reality Research Group of Ship Design Laboratory at the School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (S-NA&ME), National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), AthensGreece, where I worked under the supervision of Professor Alexandros-Alvertos I. Ginnis on the coupling parametric-design tools with virtual reality systems to develop an immersed computational design platform for complex maritime vessels.

I also worked as a part-time Research Assistant at the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering of the University of StrathclydeGlasgow, United Kingdom. As part of the NEXUS project, I worked on the development of a digital system for simulating the operational activities in offshore wind turbine farms. 

During my master's studies, I worked as a Research Scholar of The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) at the Smart Computer-Aided Design laboratory of Istanbul Technical UniversityIstanbul, Turkey. At this laboratory, I worked under the supervision of Dr Erkan Gunpinar on parametric and machine learning techniques to develop a digital framework called ModiYacht for the design of superyachts.

In July 2017, I also had the privilege of working as an International Internship Student Trainee with Professor Hiromasa Suzuki at the Geometric Modelling for Industrial Application Laboratory at the University of TokyoTokyo, Japan. While working with Professor Suzuki, I developed a machine intelligence model to induce human perception into the design process.
