Role within GHGA: Team member
Institution: Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen
Workstream: Data Hub Operations, Metadata
I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Statistics and master's degree in Bioinformatics at the Middle East Technical University, Ankara. My Ph.D. work in the Applied Bioinformatics Group, Tübingen, was centered around the goal of developing a software system as a decision support mechanism for clinicians to access data related to therapeutic decisions. It provided me insight into the importance of standardizing genomics data, promoting data sharing, and streamlining well-maintained bioinformatics operations in precision medicine which motivated me to join the GHGA consortium.
