I am a marine biologist, I earned my master’s degree at the Marine Biology and Fisheries Department in the METU, Institute of Marine Sciences. I am recently a Ph. D. candidate and a Research Assistant at the Istanbul University, Institute of Marine Science and Management. My research focused on the optical properties of seawater, primary production, and ecosystem health. I am also a Marine Conservation Expert at the Turkish Marine Research Foundation, carrying out a national jellyfish monitoring program (YaYakarsa?). I worked on different citizen science projects. Being a marine biologist was a dream since my childhood, and I am very happy that I will be able to use my professionality for a better and healthier Black Sea.
What makes me connect to the Black Sea?
The survival skill inspires me.
