My PhD research has been in the intersection between improving mental health through training of cognitive control. Besides my PhD projects, I've been actively involved in establishing initiatives to support Uyghur adults and children in Istanbul to access and benefit from mental health support services. We have successfully positive impacted the lives of more than one hundred individuals, and plan to upscale our efforts in the form of establishing a nonprofit organization in the upcoming months.
