Namık Kemal University


I graduated from Trakya University, Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Soil Science in 1996 as top student of the department. At the same year, I both started to MS in institute of natural and applied sciences in Trakya University and work as research assistant in Trakya University, Department of Soil Science. I worked as research assistant in the same department between 1996 and 2007. I am working as Assistant Professor in Namık Kemal University, Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Soil Science and Plant Nutrition since 2007. And then, I was assigned to lecture for one week each within the context of Erasmus teaching staff mobility at Trakia Democritus University in Greece in 2011 and at University of Technology and Life Sciences in Poland in 2013. I was assigned for 3 months between 11 July and 11 October at “the University of Vermont” in Vermont-USA to take a part in a project called “use of soil earthworms in agriculture”. I served as project head and researcher in 15 projects supported by Tübitak, Trakya University, Namık Kemal University, Bilecik Seyh Edebali University and Bozok University Scientific Research Projects Units. I have 80 articles on soil science, soil ecology, plant nutrition, soil fertility, soil chemistry, soil-water pollution, ecologic agriculture, soil earthworms and fertilization topics as research articles and papers presented in domestic and abroad scientific meetings. Also, 5 of them are the articles published in international periodicals cited by international science indexes (SCI). I won 12 months research scholarship at “The University of Vermont” in Vermont-USA for the second term of 2013 in the context of Tubitak 2219 International Postdoctoral Research Scholarship Program.
