Hi, I'm Meriç!


I am a designer at LinkedIn and also an alum of Carnegie Mellon University. Previously, I was an interaction design intern at Carbon Health SF.

I have a multi-faceted design background. After starting my career as an industrial designer in an early-stage mechatronics startup, I returned my alma mater and worked as a communication designer. Through contract work, I delivered digital experiences. Prior CMU, I worked as a user researcher in an autonomy/technology-adoption focused industry project.

Now, I'm transitioning to interaction design. As a designer, my goal is to empower people by making technology more approachable and accessible. I'm the happiest if my team delivers a successful solution with real-life impact.

Feel free to connect with me via email or LinkedIn.
