Burak Taşdizen, MSc.
Designer, Researcher, Writer. 

I completed my undergraduate and graduate education at Middle East Technical University Department of Industrial Design. I wrote an ethnography of knitting practice over a women’s knitting community, focusing on the micro-economies surrounding the knitting pattern and skill. I worked as a Research Assistant at Özyeğin University Department of Industrial Design between 2016—2019 and taught undergraduate design studio. Between 2020—2022, I then worked as a project coordinator and a research fellow at the Orient-Institut Istanbul of Max Weber Foundation, a German humanities organization. I am the recipient of Course Performance Award from METU, and of MAD Research Grant of Center for Spatial Justice.
