Position: Ph.D. Student (Research Associate)


Eda completed her bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering at METU and worked in strategic positions in various industries for several years. While pursuing her master’s degree in Data Engineering at Jacobs University, she worked at Roche Diagnostics, where she developed tools for the statistical analysis for the comparison of assay measurements and investigated statistical models for degradation rate calculation and shelf-life estimation. In 2021, she started her Ph.D. in computational systems biology.


Eda is currently participating in two projects: (1) a research project funded by the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) and (2) a joint research project with the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, in which she analyzes transcriptome and/or methylation profiles of human /mouse cell cultures. Her research areas include genotype-phenotype relationships, disease networks, network medicine, and synthetic data generators.
