Interactive Information Design Research Group (Happern)
We explore the complex, unexpected, uncommon interaction and communication experiences happening between human-information, human-human, human-environment or human-systems. We spot these weird situations; analyze, ideate, dream, alter and design about them while looking for authentic interaction patterns.
Research Interests:Interaction with the complex information, Interaction under complex situations, Interface design for complexity.

Industrial Design Research Group
Newly established in Koç University Design Lab, this research group explores technologies, products and services that lead to a better quality life through applying user centered design methods to everyday life problems. Currently the group has two research projects that will start in September 2016.
Research interests: Industrial design, user centered design, design for behavior change, design for healthy living, design for sustainable living, sustainable design, design theory and methodology, critical design.
- INTERNET OF THINGS: User Acceptance of Connected Household Appliances (UACHA)
This project aims to support the design of future connected household appliances (CHA) by developing 1) a conceptual model that explains the dimensions of user acceptance of CHA, 2) a validated user acceptance scale that helps measuring these dimensions, and 3) a design guide that helps designing better CHA with high user acceptance.
- DESIGN FOR HEALTHY LIVING: Motivating Long-Term Physical Activity through Design (MLAP)
This project aims to support the design of future physical activity trackers by determining design strategies and dimensions that support long-term user engagement and that contribute to sustained behavior change.
