I am a topologist, interested mainly in knot theory and its generalizations, knotoid theory and combinatorics. I work as an assistant professor at the Department of Mathematics at the Izmir Institute of Technology in Turkey since October 2019.
I was a Dorothea Schlözer Postdoctoral fellow at GeorgAugust Universitat Göttingen in January 2020 July 2022. My postdoc supervisor was Prof. Thomas Schick.
I was formerly a Leibniz Fellow in AugustOctober 2019 at Oberwolfach Research Institute for Mathematics. You can find my CV here.
