He is the author of over 50 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals, inventor on 7 patents, and has more than 15 years research experience in organic and medicinal chemistry. He is a member of professional societies, including the International Society of Heterocyclic Chemistry (ISHC) and Turkish Chemical Society. He is also on the editorial board of some chemistry & medicinal journals. He is a referee for some international journals.


His laboratory at Istanbul University is dedicated to the interdisciplinary research in the fields of bioorganic/medicinal chemistry and chemical biology. He has used a combination of structure-activity study and advanced computational calculations to study mode of actions. His research interests include interdisciplinary approaches within the field of organic synthesis, computational chemistry, chemical biology, and bioorganic chemistry with focus on pharmaceuticals and natural products.
