    I am an artist and researcher in natural sciences. I  currently continue my postdoctoral research. I work with photography, video, and objects. I am engaged in text and images mostly in self-published zine format. My scientific research is at the intersection of physics and chemistry and includes device-making with common printing methods.

In my artistic works, I center the critical approaches to mark the clashes, to ask questions about what is included and what is excluded  in relations and in everyday life between human and nonhuman beings, in between things and environment.  I experiment with these connections through installation, photographs, and video.

In my recent works, I also write and collect images on daily scientific work, science, and technology through artistic research around structures of scientific space and scientific looking and valuing.  I try to understand the intersections of the forgotten and established attention forms.
