Max Planck Institute, Dresden

I’m a theoretical biophysicist at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems. Following my PhD  in Istanbul on statistical physics, I started working on biophysical problems and moved to US, then to France and recently to Germany. My research focuses on self-organization in living organisms: dynamics of biochemical networks, cells, and tissues, and the evolution of populations. I am interested in unraveling the influence of metabolism in evolution and development of organisms.
