I am a proffessional astronomer and a communication scientist, working primarily on improwing our understanding of extrasolar planets. I’ve been working for the Astrophysics Research Centre & Ulupınar Observatory of the University of Canakkale in Turkey for seven years, and now moved to another university and research centre – University of Cag (Dept. Of Math and Computer Sciences) and Space and Astronomy Office (SAO) – which is located southern region of Turkey. I graduated Physics department in 2008 and Space Sciences and Technologies in 2010. My thesis is about ‘A Status Report and Planning of Future for Exoplanet Observations’ . I’m interested in this topic and effects on society.
Thanks to my new position at SAO, I’ll be able to work as a Science Communicator, Coordinator and Program Director for public in general, doing astronomical observations and presenting some recent planetarium shows for visitors.
