I received my Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Hacettepe University in 2007 and obtained a Master’s degree in clinical psychology from the same university in 2010. I then worked as a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist in Turkey, after which I started with my PhD in Marburg.
As my doctoral project, I worked in the GUI project, which investigates neural processes of social interaction in subjects with genetic and environmental risk factors for schizophrenia.
