I have been a research scientist at Hacettepe University, Department of Biology since 2007. I am a microbiologist who does research especially on bee health and bee products. I occasionally become a speaker at beekeeping seminars. I also enjoy giving training on bees and bee products to children and adults who are not related to the beekeeping industry. I am the Editor of the scientific journal called Mellifera and the Vice- Director of the Hacettepe University Bee and Bee Products Application and Research Center.
