I am a first-generation female scientist from Ankara, Turkey. Currently I am a postdoc at the University of Oklahoma. My research focuses on collecting and analyzing data to better understand physical and dynamical processes of orographic precipitation. I use satellite and in situ (rain gauges, weather radar) data to characterize and model uncertainty related to satellite-based precipitation products (SPP) from TRMM and GPM particularly over complex terrain by accounting for dynamical processes of orographic precipitation.
