I am broadly interested in mammalian biology and ecology. Currently I am a PhD student of Zonguldak Bulent Ecevit University. My study is related to the small cetacean distribution and abundance in the south-western region of the Black Sea and their habitat preference in dependence on abiotic and anthropogenic factors. In the framework of my PhD thesis, my research interest also covers relationship between diet dynamics of the cetaceans and changes in populations of their preys.
