My PhD research is investigating types of visualisation of match-related information and modes of interaction on second screen (specifically smartphone and tablet) that enhance the viewer experience of watching football matches on TV.

The first phase of my PhD was about an extensive literature review regarding to football fandom, football consumption in digital age, TV broadcasting models, the phenomenon of second screen and some existing applications.

Second stage of my doctoral dissertation involved an online questionnaire and interviews in which I asked questions around regarding how, why, when and how often do people engage in consuming match-related information on second medium when they watch football matches on TV. After then, I compiled the results and discussed them in a work-in-progress paper that was accepted by TVX2014 conference that was held in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK in 25-27 June, 2014.

Prior to writing up, I plan to hold another stage to generate data that consists low-fidelity and high-fidelity prototype testing to see which ways of interaction and types of visualisation of match-related information enhance the user experience.

In order to see different ideas regarding to what people could prefer as 'ideal second screen experience' in this regard, I ran a workshop, 'Second Screen and Live TV Football' on the 5th of December, 2014 at Royal Geographical Society in London. My proposal for this workshop was selected to be funded along with other eleven student events by Digital Economy Network (DEN) upon my application to the DENs first call for proposals.

My PhD supervisors are Dr Emmanuel Tsekleves and Dr Andreas Mauthe. I am funded by School of Computing and Communications, Lancaster University with UK/EU level of fee waiver and annual stipend

I am a graphic and web designer who completed MRes in Digital Innovation at Lancaster University, MA in Visual Communication Design and Visual Arts and BA in Economics at Sabanci University.

I am a devoted fan of BJK and also interested in the intellectual side of football as well as various topics around visual communication design.
