Understanding multicellularity through mathematics

Works at

MIT-huset, plan 3, Matematik och matematisk statistik, IceLab, Naturvetarhuset Umeå universitet, 901 87 Umeå

The complex and dynamic nature of biological systems always stimulated me and I am particularly drawn to interdisciplinary working areas where mathematics and biology intertwine. Currently, at IceLab-Umeå University, I am studying on evolution of multicellularity. My background in applied mathematics guides me as I delve into the evolution of multicellularity, and I'm driven to unravel complex developmental processes through my mathematical expertise.
I received my MSc degree in Mathematics from Izmir Institute of Technology. During my master's degree, I studied ordinary and partial differential equations and their numerical solutions. I investigated the solution properties of physical and chemical problems as I implemented numerical algorithms to solve and/or simulate them.
Beyond the academic realm, I am from Izmir and I enjoy watching art house cinema, listening to timeless tunes, and spending time in nature through hiking and camping.
