I studied Molecular Biology and Genetics for my Bachelor's degree and shifted my focus towards evolutionary biology for my Master's degree at Middle East Technical University (Turkey). During my PhD I will be concentrating on Aquilegia species (columbines) occurring in Europe. Using genome sequence data, I aim to shed light on the processes that drive or contribute to species diversity in Aquilegia.
