I graduated from School of Medicine, University of Ankara, Turkey with an MD degree in 1991. I worked as a House Officer for 2 years before starting PhD in Human Anatomy. Halfway through my graduate study, I was awarded a scholarship and started PhD at the University of Liverpool. My thesis was about the effects of aging on brain and memory. Following the award of PhD, I worked as teaching fellow, and promoted to assistant professor. I was an associate professor of anatomy before I semi-retired in 2017 and moved to Scotland to work at the University of St Andrews as a lecturer.
I have extensive experience in teaching gross anatomy and neuroanatomy to medical, dentistry, physiotherapy students. My research interest lies in clinical anatomy, anatomy education and medical imaging.
