Originally a Professional Swimmer and Finswimmer, I am now a lecturer in Sports and Exercise Nutrition at Manchester Metropolitan University. I teach many different modules such as sports physiology, performance enhancement, sports nutrition, and weight control, while at the same time supervising dissertations for undergraduate and Master students. With my department, I also provide sports nutrition counseling, seminars and workshops to many professional sports teams and athletes (rugby, basketball, swimming, triathlon, martial sports, etc.). Again, with my department, as a Sport and Exercise Nutrition Registrant (SENr), we provide cooking sessions to the Manchester City football club and do many performance tests in our labs. Moreover, I am a holder of “International Olympic Committee Sports Nutrition Diploma”. I am working with many elite athletes and sports teams from different parts of the world, in addition to speaking at the seminars and conferences worldwide.
I recently worked as a visiting lecturer on the MSc Exercise and Nutrition Sciences programme and as a laboratory technician at the exercise physiology lab in the University of Chester. Following an MSc in Exercise and Nutrition Science at University of Chester, I am currently undertaking a part time PhD in “The Effects of Different Pathways of Nitric Production on Sport Performance” in Clinical Sciences and Nutrition Department. In addition, I have another Master degree in Sport Management at Bachesehir University in Turkey. I am a member of several professional bodies including The Sport and Exercise Nutrition Registration (SENr), American College of Sports Medicine, Professionals in Nutrition for Exercise and Sport, International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism and FIFA-CIEs sport management programme.
I have also recently worked with Turkish National Basketball Team, which included NBA players, in preparation for Rio Olympic qualification. I provided nutritional strategies, and supplementation advice for trainings, camps and tournaments. I have also applied specific 1:1 nutritional support and weight management plans to Turkish national team swimmers and under water sports athletes according to their specific disciplines over seasons and competition periods.
Beside my academic and practitioner experience, I have extensive background in professional and international sport. I have been a national athlete (swimming and under water sports) for 11 years and competed finals in both European (4 times) and World (5 times) championships. In 2015, I won a silver medal in the Finswimming category at the 1st Mediterranean Beach Games (equivalent to the Commonwealth Games). I am still 3 National record holder and have had totally 23 national records. Additionally, I have worked as a head coach of the Turkish Junior National Team at the Turkish Underwater Sports Federation in both 2014 European and the World Junior Championships in 2015. 2008 – 2014, I have worked as sports director and head coach in TYK Sport Club in Turkey and won 14 national championships with male and female teams and trained 14 national athletes.
