Hi, Ümit is here! I work at the SOFIA Science Center/NASA ARC as a postdoctoral researcher. I draw on data collected as part of the SOFIA Legacy Program FEEDBACK, led by Xander Tielens and Nicola Schneider to understand stellar feedback in Galactic massive star-forming regions.
On December 3rd, 2021, I received my PhD from the University of Groningen (Kapteyn Astronomical Institute). I studied the formation of massive stars and their interactions with the surrounding material at submillimeter and far-infrared wavelengths. Istanbul University awarded me a Master's degree in Astronomy and Space Sciences. Prof. Dr. Peter Schilke of the University of Cologne and Prof. Dr. Tansel Ak of Istanbul University supervise the thesis. The thesis defense took place on May 13th, 2016 in Istanbul (Turkey). I searched for for radio-jets from high-mass young star objects using the EVLA/NRAO interferometer.

My primary research interests are the formation of high-mass stars and how they interact with their surrounding gas as they form and evolve through time. I search for radio jets in high-mass star forming regions with EVLA intereferometer for my Master's thesis. For my PhD thesis, I study the association of radio jets with masers. In the following, I concentrate on the kinematics and morphological characteristics of CO-dark H2 gas using space and stratospheric telescopes.
