Elif is a material scientist interested in novel and innovative design solutions for the next generation of textiles and smart wearables.

Elif received a BSc degree in Textile Engineering from Istanbul Technical University and her PhD in Material Science and Engineering from Sabanci University with the thesis 'Designed-In Molecular Interactions and Cross-linking Interface for Superior Nanocomposites: A Multi-Scale Insight', and completed the computational part of her study at the University of Cambridge with Professor James Elliott. Dr Elif holds a postgraduate certificate in Art and Design education awarded in 2020.

As a reader in Smart Materials, Elif leads several research projects bringing new material solutions into the textiles-intertwined disciplines, such as wearable communication, composites, and novel materials and fibre technologies. Elif received a prestigious Individual Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship (MSCA-IF) to perform research on graphene-based textiles communication.
