I grew up in Istanbul, Turkey and completed my undergraduate studies in Molecular Biology and Genetics at Istanbul Technical University and Biosciences at Heidelberg University. During this period, I worked in numerous labs to explore my research interests. In the end, I was convinced that neuroscience was the thing I wanted to go for. I became fascinated by the broad and complex nature of the nervous system. I went on to write my thesis at the IZN Heidelberg, where I examined the regulation of neuronal stem cells in the subventricular zone.
Upon completion of my undergraduate, I moved to Berlin to do my masters in the International Graduate Program Medical Neurosciences at Charite Berlin. In 2019, I started work in the lab of Dr. Michael Brecht at the Humboldt University and Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience with an interest in the neural circuits and dynamics behind animal behaviors. That’s where I started to work with Dr. Ann Clemens on the neural basis of maternal attachment in rats.
As I continue to work with Ann and the Kinship lab on our ongoing project, I am writing my masters thesis on neural correlates of prediction in the auditory brain at the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin.
