My name in short is 'Ays', which is pronounced as 'ice'. I was born and raised in Izmir, a beautiful city on Aegean Coast, in Turkey by my family of five. After finishing high school in my hometown, I moved to Istanbul for my undergraduate study, which has motivated my current interests while letting me experience many academic skills for the first time. 


I lived in Sydney, London, and Colchester, before moving to Amsterdam. I enjoy travelling, walking in nature, swimming, baking, petting my furry flatmates, and taking care of my orchids.
