I am Femin Yalçın. I was born in Izmir, Turkey in 1987. I have been in love with Mathematics since I was a little girl that’s why I decided to have a major in Maths.
After completion of my undergraduate education, I started to the Ph.D. program entitled Applied Mathematics and Statistics and in July 2013 I completed my Ph.D. under supervisions of Prof. Dr. Ismihan Bayramoglu (Bairamov) and Prof. Dr. Serkan Eryilmaz.  The title of my Ph.D. thesis was “Distribution theory of runs and run‐related statistics in sequences of dependent trials”.
Since september 2013 I have been teaching courses on probability, statistics, and mathematics. Currently I work as an assistant professor at the Department of Engineering Sciences in Izmir Katip Celebi University, Turkey. I also give lectures at Izmir University of Economics as a part-time lecturer.
In 2015, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at University of Piraeus, Greece and University of Toronto, Canada.
I can speak three languages, which are Turkish (native), English (advanced level), and German (pre-intermediate level).
My personal interests are fitness and clean eating.
