“I’ve really enjoyed being able to collaborate with Ufuk, along with his supervisor, Wolfgang.  Ufuk is a really sharp guy and brings a large range of skills to any research problem.  His engineering background coupled with human-computer interaction makes him a terrific designer and developer, along with someone who can study the human experience in-depth.  Plus – he’s just a really enjoyable guy to work with and be around.”

-Dr. Carman Neustaedter

"Ufuk is a great asset in the lab. He thinks deeply about the research challenges and comes up with great solutions all while making the lab a fun social hub to work in. I feel privileged to have him as a post doc in my lab.”

-Dr. Wolfgang Stuerzlinger

I am an electrical and electronics engineerings with a minor degree in computer engineering. I have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from the University of Strasbourg. I am currently working on human-computer interaction and virtual and augmented reality.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?

To work with my current supervisor, Wolfgang Stuerzlinger. He is a world-wide known researcher in 3D User Interfaces, he is an expert on Human-Computer Interaction and he has deep knowledge of Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR).

TELL US ABOUT YOUR RESEARCH AND/OR PROGRAM.

I am trying to understand how virtual environments affect our brain or body so that I can help people to use these virtual environment technologies as a part of their daily life.

WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?

I like working with people coming from different academic backgrounds, such as cognitive psychology or brain-computer interaction. SFU is a wonderful place where I can quickly contact and start working with people from different backgrounds.
