Background and activities

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Industrial Ecology Programme at the Department of Energy and Process Engineering at NTNU, supervised by Edgar Hertwich and co-supervised by Daniel Beat Muller and Niko Heeren.

My research focuses on quantifying the energy consumption of the global residential building stock via building energy simulations. In this manner, I am currently working on the development of representative residential building archetypes for different regions of the world. My Ph.D. is a part of the RECC project: Resource Efficiency and Climate Change that concentrates on combining industrial ecology methods such as life-cycle assessment (LCA), material dynamics based on cohort-modeling (DMFA), input-output analysis (IOA), engineering tools such as building energy models, and energy scenario modeling methods.


I have a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Izmir University of Economics (Izmir, Turkey) and a Master of Architecture degree from the Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey). Before beginning my Ph.D. I was working as a research assistant in four different projects focusing on building performance assessment, parametric design, building performance simulation, energy efficiency, building information modeling (BIM), heritage building information modeling (HBIM), architectural visualization, UX design, and virtual and mixed reality environments for design.
