About

My PhD research focused on investigating the petrology, geochemistry and geochronology of magmatic rocks within the Çangaldağ Metamorphic Complex (Central Pontide - Turkey), which helped decipher the tectono-magmatic history within Turkey and Black Sea region during the mid-Jurassic. My postdoctoral researcher at University of Notre Dame (USA) focused on deciphering the chemical and isotopic evolution of Earth's upper mantle by focusing on investigating the stable (C, O, and B) and radiogenic (Nd, Pb, Sr, and U-Pb) isotope signatures of carbonatites and associated alkaline rocks from China, Canada and Turkey
