Qualification Level



I was born in Izmir, which is located in west part of Turkey near the Aegean Sea. My geotechnical journey was started in year 2000 after enrolling in the department of Geological Engineering at Istanbul Technical University.
After graduation from University at 2007, I joined as a graduate site engineer Zetas Zemin Teknolojisi which is one of the leaders of specialist ground engineering contracting in Turkey and a subsidary of Soletanche Bachy group.
My role has developed over the past ten years. My success has been achieved through considerable personal sacrifice and devotion. I have successfully managed to elevate company’s geotechnical standing to a lead position in Turkey. In addition, I have demonstrated my ability to manage people and overcome barriers to ensure delivery excellence and the realization of client satisfaction.
I started a new journey in my career at the end of ten years in the company and I have been working at Burkut Yer Mühendisliği as a deputy general manager since October 2017.
