I am an artist and an engineer based in Cambridge. Originally from Turkey, I moved in the UK to study my PhD in Engineering at the University of Cambridge. Being inspired by my scientific and engineering background, I developed the skill of converting my experiences and emotions into well-defined geometric shapes, sharp lines combined with vibrant colours. My work explores a range of media; primarily acrylics and watercolours.
 

I am one of the members of the New Constructivists, an association of professional artists exhibiting around London with a strong interest in non-figurative work derived from geometry, abstraction and science. I also collaborate with scientists around Cambridge to promote the idea of SciArt. I contributed to the online exhibition called Intersecting Perspectives in SciArt magazine published in New York. I am still fully engaged with science and engineering as the Co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Zinergy UK LTD aiming to manufacture ultrathin, printed and flexible batteries to power next generation wearable electronics and Internet of Things.

 

 SciArt Events

Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform for promoting women scientists and the science they do. A special edition of event took place at Strawberry Fair in Cambridge this year: Soapbox Art and Science. For this event, Nicola Smyllie, from the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology at University of Cambridge was partnered with engineer and local artist Dilek Özgit to give a more visual presentation on the research of circadian clocks. Dilek visited the Nicola at the LMB, to see first-hand the types of research conducted by The Hastings lab in the Neurobiology Division. Dilek then created a painting especially for the event, inspired by the brain slice imaging of the master clock, the suprachiasmatic nucleus. Here we display her painting along side a microscopy image, taken by Nicola, showing the master clock labelled in different colours for different neuronal cell types.

The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), master clock of the brain as seen by immunofluorescence and confocal microscopy (left), or abstract acrylic painting, where local artist, Dilek, drew inspiration from visiting the Hastings Lab at the LMB (right). This formed part of our collaboration for the Soapbox Science and Art event, where we presented on the theme of circadian clocks. Soapbox Science is an outreach platform for promoting women scientists and bringing their research into public spaces.
