About me

Hi there!

I am an Assistant Research Professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment at Arizona State University (ASU). I hold a PhD in Civil, Environmental, and Sustainable Engineering from ASU, along with an MS in Industrial and System Engineering from Istanbul Sehir University and a BS in Industrial Engineering from TOBB Economy and Technology University. My research interests include travel behavior, sustainable and equitable transportation, emerging transportation technologies, travel demand forecasting, smart cities, and machine learning.

In my current role, I have led multiple research projects as principal or co-principal investigator at the TOMNET University Transportation Center, totaling more than $500,000 in funding. My work has been featured in journals such as Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice, Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment, Transportation Research Record, and Cities. Along with conducting research, I have also been involved in proposal writing and have developed open-source software and tools. I have mentored undergraduate and graduate students working at the Center as well. In addition to my research efforts, I also serve as the Research Communications and Technology Transfer Coordinator at the TOMNET UTC, managing internal and external communications and coordinating technology transfer activities for the Center.
