Ebru Torun is an architect, graduate of the Middle East Technical University in Ankara. In 1995, she obtained her master degree in conservation from the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation (RLICC) at the University of Leuven, with a dissertation and a conservation project on the Casa Botter, an Art Nouveau building in Istanbul. A summer-training in 1994 at the site of Sagalassos caused a shift in her professional focus from the 19th/20th architecture towards archaeology. She joined the Sagalassos Archaeological Research Project in 1998. First being occupied with the anastylosis project of the Northwest Heroon for several years, she became responsible for the architectural conservation and documentation on the site in 2005. Since 2008, as the site manager, together with Prof. Waelkens, she is working to transform the conservation practice at Sagalassos into an archaeological heritage management process, in collaboration with the authorities and a wide range of stakeholders.
