I am sophomore in the Materials Science and Engineering at Gebze Technical University. I have been curious about science and technology since I started high school and I am curious person who is trying to learn about various subjects. My adventure with science has started in high school. I was participant various competition (unmanned aerial vehicle, entrepreneurship, etc.). I’ve worked on molecular biology and biomedical engineering in several research laboratories as a research intern. I am currently studying on production of (PZT-PVP) ceramic-polymer composite by using electrospinning method and analysis of the dielectric properties (Piezoelectric Ceramic Research Laboratory). In addition, I am also studying synthesis of green nanoparticles as using silver and palladium metals at Biochemistry Laboratory.

Credo:

“You got to put the past behind you before you can move on.”
