AYDIN ÖZTOPRAK , PhD Industrial Designer
 
 
Thank you for visiting my web site. I am an industrial designer and a researcher.
 
Currently I am working as an Assistant Professor at TOBB Economy and Technology University . I conduct Industrial Design Studio and Computer Aided Design courses. Also I am the head of MEDEC - Medical Equipment Design Center. We provide industrial design services for medical device manufacturers. 
I recently completed my Fulbright visiting researcher fellowship at MIT Department of Architecture House_n Research Group. During my research at MIT, I worked on sensor based portable contextual data collection tools.

In my PhD study I am focused on data collection tools and methods from natural use environments. I am interested in identifying users' needs and evaluating products' usability performance without disturbing users` daily activities. Detailed information on my previous and ongoing research is available here.

Besides my research I am working as a freelance industrial designer. You can find my selected projects here.
