Hi! I'm Çağrı. I love everything about science. Especially reading about science and teaching it to broader audiences. Right now, I am the CEO of Tree of Evolution and the Editor-in-Chief of Evrim Ağacı. The former, which is based in the US, is the parent company of the latter, which is a science organization that operates in Turkey. Both of these organizations aim to teach science to the public, raise awareness about science, and promote science among the youth and the general public of Turkey and other countries. Prior to starting Tree of Evolution, I was a PhD in Mechanical Engineering Department at Texas Tech University with a PhD minor in Biological Sciences Department. Even if my degree is officially in engineering, I am a long enthusiast of evolutionary biology. My engineering research is also in theoretical and mathematical evolutionary biology applied to robotics and algorithms. Since the inception of Evrim Ağacı in 2010, I have given many talks and conferences all around Turkey and I have been producing popular science content since then. I am a published author of 2 popular science books on evolutionary biology. I am also a YouTuber and trying to create science videos of a Turkish and/or English speaking audience. I am originally from Ankara, Turkey but right now live in Lubbock, Texas.

When I read your books, I feel like I am listening to you directly. Your books are so easy to understand and they flow so smoothly. I say this especially because these are the first books I am reading on evolutionary biology. Health to your pen!

Teacher

"Don't curse the darkness, light a candle!" I am deeply happy to have started my high school years with Evrim Ağacı and I will graduate with Evrim Ağacı. Back then I thought life was just about going to the school and back. But now, I am filled with a desire to become a scientist. I explained everything I learned from Evrim Ağacı to my friends and even teachers. I learned how to teach science from Evrim Ağacı. Now I am a candidate to become a scientist. I have a long way, but I am glad to be a part of this family.
