In
my professional life, I have always looked for common grounds between disparate
fields of science and aspired to make use of the interaction among them. I have
known for a long time now that most disciplines are intertwined and what helps
breed the most striking and practical research outcomes is to bridge these
various fields. That is why, as a chemical engineering graduate, I chose to
combine my theoretical knowledge about chemistry of materials with something
that matters to human lives the most; health. Therefore, I began my academic
career by doing a master’s study in the field of tissue engineering, where I
design a biomaterial that interacts with living organisms and improves its
functions. In my current studies, I truly enjoy learning more and more about
the molecular basis of cell behavior. To develop cell-based smart therapy
systems for treating illnesses with an engineer’s perspective is my main
objective.

I
do believe that there are too many ways to touch human lives. From sustainable
energy applications and robotics to biomedical research, one can contribute to
society as a motivated researcher who uses their ability for the sake of
environment, technology and human health. Among these, research topics that have
an impact on human health have always had a special place in my heart.
Following my instincts, I started my master’s studies in Prof. Seda Kizilel’s
group in Fall 2016 at Koç University. In our lab, research mainly focuses on
synthesis of functional biomaterials that can be used in diverse biomedical
applications such as drug delivery and tissue engineering, and joining the
group was one of the best decisions I have made in my life career-wise.
Currently, I am working on a project in which I develop a hydrogel for the
coating of insulin secreting cells for the treatment of Type I diabetes via
cell transplantation technology. Since the beginning of my master’s studies, I
gained not only much new theoretical and practical knowledge and experience but
also satisfaction that devoting myself to biomedical research was the right
decision.
