About Me


Hi, there and welcome to ylcnky.com ! I am Mehmet Yalcinkaya, a senior researcher from Finland currently pursuing a PhD from Aalto University, Department of Civil Engineering.

I believe the backbone of innovativation is the unique harmony of creative design thinking and state-of-the-art technology development where I built my academic and professional career on top of it. The academic and industrial experience I had so far, shaped my expertise on Building Information Modeling (BIM), focusing more on the software and systems development. I do and develop computing and data management solutions for digital built environment. I use Semantic Web & Linked Data, Internet of Things (IoT), Graphs, Data Management & Analytics, Information Visualization, Unity Game Engine, Open Source BIMServer for my solutions.
Besides, I enjoy photography, cycling and swimming.

Please see my profile below and do not hesitate to contact me.
