Hey there :)
I graduated from Boğaziçi University, Philosophy Department. Then I asked myself "Okay, I've learned great questions, but I now need some answers!" So, I started my masters in METU, Cognitive Sciences Department, and then got my PhD from the same department.
I worked in Baskent University Psychology department as an assistant professor for a while. Although I love teaching, my unstoppable passion of doing research and learning new things made me decide to change my path, and I started working as a post-doctoral fellow in Psychological and Brain Sciences Department, Dartmouth College.
I am a research enthusiast, working especially on cognitive neuroscience. I'm specialized in designing both behavioral & fMRI experiments. I am particularly interested in emotion regulation impairments in psychiatric disorders, such as depression; and lately I have mostly been working on brain plasticity.
Apart from my scientific skills, I do ballet, I write poems, and try to learn playing cello :)
