I am Merve, from Germany, and I’d love to be your new flatmate! I am a master student in Evolutionary Biology and I’ll be finishing up my mater thesis, starting in October, at the Brocks lab in the Earth Sciences department at ANU.
Over the years I got to travel a lot and lived in a variety of places. I fought of monkeys from my sample sites in Hong Kong for 4 months, experinced polar bears and the northern lights in Svalbard for 6 months, went hiking throughout Sweden for 5 months and explored the US for a year. Throughout this time I have lived with many flatmates and enjoyed long discussions, amazing cook outs and met amazing friends :). What I love most is to spend my evenings sharing some wine, amazing food and great conversation. I am also an enthusiastic hiker and love to explore nature around me. In my free time I also frequent bouldering gyms and I am planing to join the ANU mounteneering club for kayaking. Oh and I also dance some salsa, but I enjoy all kinds of music :). I am somewhat of a science nerd and looove fossils as well as anything space related, but no worries I can somewhat contain myself ... at times :)).
I am an outgoing person and never had problems approaching people, but since I am a student myself, I also respect peoples need for a quite home to study and relax as well. I am also a quite cleanly person since I like to feel cozy and comfortable at home.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me anytime! Since I am currently still in Turkey I would be more happy to set up a Skype meeting with you :))
Ideally I would like to move in in the beginning of Oktober.
Hope to hear from you soon,
