'I grew up in Antalya and Seferihisar (Turkey), where I started an undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics. I then moved to Germany to study my masters degree in Neural and Behavioral Sciences. After working on comparative genomics, developmental and evolutionary neuroscience I came to Bonn to start my PhD on molecular mechanisms of self-recognition and cannibalistic behavior of Pristionchus pacificus. I am interested in the genomic and molecular mechanisms of neural circuits that facilitate innovative behaviours. '
