I joined the University of Sheffield in June 2023 to contribute to the National Institute for Health and Care Research's (NIHR) Evidence Synthesis Programme. I work as a part-time Research Associate in Evidence Synthesis and concurrently hold a part-time postdoctoral position at the University of Manchester.

With a background as a physiotherapist, my clinical experience in rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases in Turkey provided the cornerstone for my subsequent academic journey. Prior to my current roles, I worked as a research assistant in the Epidemiology and Public Health Department at the University of Nottingham. Subsequently, I undertook the role of a systematic reviewer at the Institute of Cancer and Genomic Sciences at the University of Birmingham.

  • BSc in Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation (Dumlupinar University/Turkey)
  • MSc in Physiotherapy (Advancing Neuromusculoskeletal Practice) (University of Nottingham/UK)
  • PhD in Academic Rheumatology (University of Nottingham/UK)
Research interests

My research interests focus on all methods of systematic review, and evidence synthesis including conventional and network meta-analysis, predominantly within the field of rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases. Additionally, I have a specific interest in Delphi exercises, patient and public involvement as well as the development and evaluation of complex intervention packages and outcome measurement scales.
