Personlig profil


I am a mammal paleontologist; I go fieldwork, find mammal fossils and study their evolution over geologic times. I am mainly interested in the evolution and paleobiogeography of the African and Asian mammals. My current research focus areas include the East Africa, Anatolia, and Western Mongolia. These areas are  excellent places to study mammal adaptation, diversification, biogeography, and community ecology due to their unique geological settings. 

I worked as a teaching assistant, laboratory assistant, and participating lecturer during my employment in Turkey, USA, and Finland between 2003–2019. I gave and participated to the lectures related to paleobiology, vertebrate paleontology, paleobiogeography, and paleoecology. Additionally, during my PhD study in University Helsinki I  have taken pedagogy courses targeting higher education and curriculum designing to improve my  teaching skills.
