Biography

I was born in Bolu's Seben district in 1962. After studying in Seben until the 3rd grade of middle school, I enrolled in Istanbul Haydarpaşa High School in 1975 as a free boarder. I finished Haydarpaşa High School in 1979. I graduated from Istanbul University Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in 1984 with a good degree, which I entered the same year. I worked as a responsible veterinarian in a special meat combination for 10 months. I started working as a Research Assistant at Istanbul University Faculty of Veterinary Medicine on May 1, 1985. I completed my PhD in 1992 and received the title of Dr. In 1993, I was appointed as Assistant Professor in the same department. In 2001, I got the title of Associate Professor with the decision of the Interuniversity Board. However, I could not be appointed to the Associate Professor position due to the appointment criteria that were constantly changed by the University administration of that day and subsequently canceled by the Council of State! In 2006, Assist. Assoc. Dr. My relationship with my faculty was terminated on the grounds that I have passed 12 years in the staff. However, after a 4-month administrative court process, this unfair practice was canceled and I returned to my University and Faculty.

I applied to the Professor staff, which was opened in 2007. Despite the fact that the entire jury gave a positive opinion, the faculty management objected twice, but the jury members did not change their decision and after 4 months in 2008, I deserved the title of Professor and was appointed as a Professor.

I was appointed as the founding Dean of Milas Veterinary Faculty by the Higher Education Council between 2016 (March) - 2018 (August). I provided the opening of this faculty on June 8, 2018 and student admission in the academic year of 2018-2019. I am still continuing my academic life as Prof Dr at Istanbul University-Cerrahpaşa Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.

I am married and have 3 sons. I am a grandfather of three grandchildren, one a girl and two a boy.
