I am Gulten Izmirlioglu, and from Turkiye. I earned my Bachelor degree in Food Engineering from Ankara University, in 2006. After my graduation I worked in a catering company for six months. I have got a scholarship from Turkish Ministry of Education for graduate studies in USA. After earning my MSc from Penn State, now, I am pursuing my PhD in Agricultural and Biological Engineering at Penn State University.

I have  been really appreciated the opportunity that I have had to study in the U.S. I do believe education is not gained only in the classroom, but also out side the classroom, and to being a part of the salad bowl allows me to learn a lot about “outside the classroom topics”.
