Ergin Şafak Dikmen, PhD

I received my PhD degree from Graduate School of Social Sciences of Ankara University with my thesis entitled “The New Media Ecosystem of Turkish Television Broadcasting”. My animation projects were screened in many cities such as Istanbul, Ankara and Berlin. I worked in different advertisement companies and in research centers as a CGI designer. Since 2011 I have been working in Ankara University, Faculty of Communication. I’m the founder and coordinator of New Media Research Lab (NETlab). My French and English are not bad :). My research area focus on new media, TV 2.0 ecosystem and technologies, free Software, media archaeology, data visualisation, Animation, digital games and eSports.
