I graduated from Ankara University (Turkey), Faculty of Language, History and Geography, Department of Prehistoric Archaeology in 2016. I completed my Master's degree in Erasmus Mundus Quaternary and Prehistory at the University of Ferrara (Italy) in 2019.

I continue my PhD studies with a Predoctoral Grant (FPI2021 – PRE2021-098328) under the supervision of Dr. Andreu Ollé and Dr. Josep Maria Vergès. The title of my PhD project is Lithic refitting analysis in Lower and Middle Pleistocene sites of the Francolí basin (Tarragona, Spain). Application of systematic refitting to the Cansaladeta sequence and comparison with Barranc de la Boella (Cala 1, Unit II). I am also collaborating with the Atapuerca field team for the studies of Gran Dolina.

Currently, my research is focused and deeply complemented on bipolar technology with different experimental works entitled Experimental Francolí 2021 (Archaeological interpretation of bipolar reduction), 2022 (Ethnographic interpretation of bipolar reduction) and 2023 (Physics of bipolar reduction).
