About Me

I was born in Istanbul, Turkey. In high school, I developed a passion for flight simulation, which led me to teach aviation courses and write a flight simulation textbook in collage. Later, I discovered my interest in psychology and pursued a degree at Middle East Technical University. Afterwards, I moved to The Netherlands. I completed a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at Leiden University, where I combined research and clinical practice. Currently, I am pursuing a PhD in epidemiology at Erasmus MC, where I conduct studies on migraine. Throughout my career, I have taught courses in psychology and science communication, and co-founded multiple science communication initiatives aimed at bridging the gap between academia and society.
