I am passionate about making a positive change in the world. I am currently an MSc student at METU focusing on the energy technology policy field and working as a Carbon Project Developer at Mundo Verde Climate. My main interest is in sustainability and fighting climate change. I am particularly interested in the Long Now Foundation, which promotes long-term thinking and sustainability. The key to tackling climate change lies in the energy sector and that is why I am focused on energy transition and carbon markets. I am also deeply invested in equality in the global education system. I believe that sustainable global education is crucial for ensuring that future generations can live in an environmentally and socially sustainable world.
Furthermore, I am keen on merging my technical knowledge with economics and politics. I believe a strong understanding of these fields is necessary to create effective and lasting change. By combining my knowledge of the energy sector, sustainability, and education with my understanding of economics and politics can make a real impact on the world.
When I am not working on making the world a better place, I enjoy playing darts, football, and swimming. These activities provide a much-needed break from the demands of my advocacy work and help me maintain a healthy work-life balance.
