Biography

During my PhD, I have analyzed historical data of Jiangsu province (China) to assess the changing pattern of temperature extremes (daily maximum and minimum temperatures) during rice growing season. I have detected heatwaves based on daily maximum and minimum temperatures and proposed that rapid increase in daily minimum temperature and hot nights are the threat to rice production in the lower reaches of Yangtze River Valley.  Latter I designed and constructed Danyang FATE (Free-air Temperature Enhancement) facility with open-field infrared heater arrays to increase rice-wheat canopy temperature in lower Reaches of Yangtze River Valley to simulate different scenarios global warming. In the final step I investigated impact of warming resembling IPCC B1 and A2 scenarios on yield components and quality parameters e.g., protein fractions, amino  acid contents, starch and sugar contents of two indica rice hybrids. Results from these experiments would help to understand susceptibility of rice crop to predicted global warming at regional level and will provide guideline for food security.

Assistant Professor
Department of Soil Science and Plant Nutrition
Faculty of Agriculture
Namık Kemal University
Tekirdağ, Turkey 

Biography

I graduated from Trakya University, Faculty of Agriculture, and Department of Soil Science in 1996 as head of the class (department). At the same year, I both started to MS in institute of natural and applied sciences in Trakya University and started to work as research assistant in Trakya University, Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Soil Science. I assumed title “MSc Engineer” in 1998 and “PhD” in 2004.

I worked as research assistant in Trakya University, Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Soil Science 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.

I attended many meetings, courses, seminars, panels, workshops, congress and festivals at home and abroad.

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 10 October at “the University of Vermont” in Vermont-USA to take a part in a project called “use of soil earthworms in agriculture”. I was invited in November-December 2012 by the same university and attended some scientific collaborative studies in order to carry out projects about “vermicompost and soil earthworms” in the University of Vermont.

I served as project head and researcher in 15 projects supported by Tübitak, Trakya University, Namık Kemal University, Nevşehir Hacı Bektaş Veli University, Bilecik Seyh Edebali University and Bozok University Scientific Research Projects Units.

I have 96 articles on soil science, soil ecology, plant nutrition, soil fertility, soil chemistry, soil-water pollution, ecologic agriculture and fertilization topics as research articles and papers presented in domestic and abroad scientific meetings. Also, 8 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.

I study the subjects about soil earthworms, vermicompost production from different organic wastes, set up and control of modern vermicompost production plants which are popular subjects all around the world recently.
