Selen Ercan is a trained architect and a digital fabrication researcher. She received her Bachelor in Architecture at the Middle East Technical University (METU) in Ankara, Turkey. Following her graduation she continued her studies as part of the Master of Science in Computational Design and Fabrication Technologies in Architecture jointly offered by METU and the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. From 2011 to 2013 she worked in various projects as part of Gramazio Kohler Research at ETH Zurich including ECHORD (European Clearing House for Open Robotics Development under the European Union’s FP-7 Research Program) dimRob which focused on applying mobile robots for in-situ construction. From 2013 to 2017, she was a researcher and a project coordinator at the Future Cities Laboratory of the Singapore ETH Centre where she lead the mobile robotic tiling project which exploits the commercial potential of applying automation in construction. In November 2017 she joined the NCCR Digital Fabrication as an associated research assistant in order to investigate building strategies for on-site robotic construction.
