I received a BSc in Molecular Biology and Genetics at the Bogazici University in Istanbul and then completed a MSc degree in Environmental Sciences at the same university with a research project focused on the evaluation of mechanisms of increasing soil quality via plant-microbe interactions. Before I moved to the UK in 2021, I lived in Melbourne for one year to work in the role of kinases in plant sugar signalling project. Currently, I am a third year PhD student in the group of Prof. Dr. Uta Paszkowski
