Didem cares about the future of the world and nature. She dreams a better world and actively works on improving inequalities regardless of their nature. She is an analytical thinker with a passion for design thinking, a researcher with a future perspective, an engineer who likes problems more than solutions and a teacher who likes to play during lectures.

She is an experienced researcher and holds a Ph.D. degree in mechatronics from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm Sweden. Currently, she is a research associate at the University of Cambridge, working on data-centric smart infrastructures, funded by the Centre for Digital Built Britain

Didem's current research interest includes data modeling, interoperability assessment, data analytics, knowledge discovery, information visualization, visual analytics, and cyber-physical systems. Didem’s research focuses on blending systems thinking, future studies and design thinking approaches to develop methods, methodologies and implementations for the purpose of overcoming interoperability, complexity and sustainability challenges related to cyber-physical systems such as smart infrastructure systems, autonomous vehicles and collaborative robots. She uses data, visual analytics and digital twins to improve the interoperability between these systems, to make these systems more understandable and to develop sustainable systems for a better future
