To teach people the beauty of science, I preferred science teaching as a bachelor’s degree. After successfully graduating from this department in 2021, I realized that I could not stay away from the sea and that I had to work on marine sciences somehow. In the same year, I enrolled in the living marine resources master’s degree program at Dokuz Eylul University, Institute of Marine Sciences and Technology.

The term “ocean literacy”, which I was introduced to at that time, allowed me to combine my studies. I am currently working on a project related to ocean literacy. At the same time, I am working on hydrozoa taxonomy for my thesis.

My favorite thing to do is diving. Experiencing the underwater world and ecosystem by diving fascinates me more and more each time.

What makes me connect to the Black Sea?
The desire to achieve a sustainable Black Sea and preserve its unique beauty by integrating ocean-literate individuals into society connects me.
