PhD Students


After completing my bachleor’s degree in Translation and Interpreting Studies at Yeditepe University, I have obtained my master’s degree in Cognitive Science and Language at the University of Barcelona, where I have developed my research interests in neuro- and biolingusitics. Upon graduating, I have started my doctoral education in Neuroscience at Yeditepe University with a particular aim to conduct interdisciplinary research between the fields neurophysiology , cognitive science and linguistics. As a PhD candidate, I am currently working on my doctoral thesis which aims to understand the neurobiological underpinnings of language control in sign and spoken languages under the supervision of Drs. Rabia Ergin and Funda Yıldırım. In addition to my academic interests, I am trained classical ballet dancer, an art enthusiast and a translator with a focus on book translations in evolutionary biology, language and cognition, and neurosciences.


I graduated from İstanbul University, Computer Engineering Department with BS in 2012 and MS in 2015. My master thesis was a classification of EEG signals on epilepsy patients using feature extraction and machine learning methods. Generally, I am interested in signal processing in neurological disorders. Now, we are starting to apply a TUBİTAK project under the supervision of Dr. Funda Yıldırım; that is the relationship between seizure distribution and seizure types in cognitive functions in epilepsy patients.



(Currently a Post-doctoral Researcher at Acıbadem University)

After I graduated from Süleyman Demirel University Faculty of Medicine in 2015, I started Neuroscience PhD program in Yeditepe University. I had observed different research areas of Neuroscience like neuron physiology and optongenetics in first years of my PhD. then, I decided to focus on cognitive neuroscience. Currently, I have started my doctoral thesis project on “human and robot face perception differences on gender” with Dr. Funda Yıldırım. We will explore perception differences with behavioral and electrophysiological methods. My research interests are face perception analysis with EEG, face-voice congruence and human-robot interactions.
