I am a PhD student in the Schatz group. I was born in Istanbul, Turkey. I spent a majority of my childhood in New Jersey. Later I moved back to Istanbul and received my Bachelor’s degree from Yeditepe University in Chemical Engineering. My research is mainly on developing new algorithms and theory related to describing the self-assembly of soft materials structures, including structures based on peptides, DNA and lipids. In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking, spending time with my friends and exploring different places.
