2006 - Ph.D. in Biophysics and Computational Biology; [UIUC], USA
2000 - B.S. in Physics; [Bilkent University], Turkey
I have received a Ph.D. degree in Biophysics and Computational Biology from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in December 2006. During my graduate study, I worked with [Prof. Taekjip Ha]on single molecule fluorescence microscopy. I was primarily responsible for developing novel experimental assays for single molecule toolkit using vesicles. I am now a post-doctoral associate with Johan Paulsson, and working on counting proteins in live cells.
