Hello, my name is Ali! I am a Candidate University Fellow from Koç University and I am studying Mechanical Engineering and Economics.
I am enthusiastic about learning new things and teaching others because I feel that sharing and motivating others will be the finest gift for the future. I have worked as a volunteer or coordinator in many volunteering projects since high school, and currently I am actively working in the Koç University Volunteering Club at our university. Last year, I had the chance to work in a project named Emerging Technologies and Sustainable Development Goals which is funded by TÜBİTAK, the most important scientific research institution of our country. EMET aims to analyze 34 emerging technologies, 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and 650 startups from all over the world that use these emerging technologies. The final result of our work is published by Springer Nature and I participated in SDG work packages and contributed writing the books introduction chapter which is about innovation management, business models, environmental and social value creation, and impact assessment. I am always passionate about learning new things and I hope to make a change both in myself and in the environment I live in, thanks to this journey.
