I have received my B.Sc degree from Department of Bioengineering at Ege University, Turkey. I continued my graduate education in the same department, and performed my M.Sc thesis about the optimization of pullulan production on air-lift and bubble-column bioreactors. I am a member of CSB group since January 2013.

I am currently a Ph.D student at Department of Bioengineering at Marmara University, and a teaching assistant at Department of Bioengineering at Gebze Institute of Technology.

Ph.D. Project

My Ph.D. project is a collaboration between CSB group in Gebze Technical University, and Prof. Ebru Toksoy Öner at Department of Bioengineering in Marmara University. My goal is to perform a computational Systems Biology analysis of microbial communities to develop novel therapeutic strategies. I am also involved in computational systems-medicine based research, where I investigate the effect of brain-related diseases on brain metabolism.
