Career Summary

I finished my Master studies in Biology from Middle East Technical University (METU), Ankara, Turkey.


Main Research Focus

Since October 2020, I joined research group of Dr. Mamta Amrute-Nayak at the Institute for Molecular-and Cell physiology to pursue my doctoral studies. My project involves studying the cardiac myosin II mutations linked to cardiomyopathies using single-molecule investigation methods.’
