After obtaining a Bachelor of Architecture and an MFA with an emphasis in amphitheater acoustics, I was accepted into Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s unique Graduate Program in Architectural Acoustics. There I completed an MS degree focusing on architectural acoustics in coupled spaces and was honored to receive the Robert Newman Award, a TCAA Student Paper Award and an ASA commendation for student design. Since 2006 I have applied my academic focus to design projects, first at RBDG Inc. in Dallas, and later at home in Turkey at MEZZO Stüdyo, the firm I co-founded in 2009. Turkish governmental supports have afforded MEZZO the opportunity to become a critically recognized “R&D incubator.” We’ve also completed over one hundred design projects, both in-house and teamed with architectural-engineering groups around the world and are proud members of NCAC (National Council of Acoustical Consultants). During the restricted times of not managing my firm—and my 3-year-old son!—I enjoy giving university lectures to inspire future generations about exciting diversities in the field of acoustics. Luckily, I just completed my PhD degree on Architectural Acoustics again, and I am much proud and happy to share this whole adventure.
