I am from Turkey. I obtained my bachelor’s degree from Sabanci University as a material scientist. However, I leaned towards X-ray astronomy during my study. I worked on several instrumentation projects such as coded mask design and CdZnTe detector simulations. I went to Denmark in 2013 for summer internship and worked on rotation modulation collimator mask and focal Compton detector design. For my bachelor thesis, I worked on the deadtime correction for HEXTE instrument and high energy variability on black hole binaries. A year ago, I moved to Florida as a graduate student in UF. Here, I work with Steve Eikenberry, continue my science study on jet formation from black hole binaries. I am in charge of fast photometry observations with CIRCE and provide necessary tools for the observations in fast photometry mode.
