I am a Professor of Medical Genetics in Turkey and clinical geneticist with specific interest in neurodevelopmental disorders. I have extensive experience in next-generation and high-throughput molecular genetics, with special focus on the use of homozygosity mapping, linkage analysis and whole-exome sequencing in recessive forms of structural and functional abnormalities of the brain. I have successfully detected rare and somatic genetic variant identification in diverse range of diseases using high-throughput and next-generation genomics approaches at Yale. In the last five years, I have published papers in Cell, Science, Nature, Nature Genetics and Neuron including one of the first successful applications of exome sequencing in the identification of genetic basis of recessive forms of structural and functional abnormalities of the brain.
I have served as a member of editorial boards, a reviewer in top-tier journals and conferences, and was invited to serve as a program committee member for international workshops and conferences as well. I established Medical Genetics Department and giving lectures to under and post graduate students, assisting in seminar groups or laboratories, and grading. Teaching activities are drawn from a diverse menu of lecture, laboratory, and seminar courses given at the undergraduate, graduate, and medical school level.
