Ms. Çilingir is an archaeobotanist and a PhD student in Istanbul University Prehistory Department. She holds a MSc degree from Middle East Technical University, Settlement Archaeology Programme and an undergraduate degree from Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts, Archaeology department. In her dissertation, she aims to understand the food economy through agricultural technologies, traditional farming methods and the use of plants that are cultivated from Tepecik-Çiftlik (6300-7000 BC). In this direction, she has been conducting ethnoarchaeological field studies since 2010, where she documents the traditional crop processing methods still used in the district of Niğde-Çiftlik and its surrounding villages. Her research interests include ethnoarchaeological interpretations of cultivation and food preparation, plant based subsistence strategies and human-plant interactions in the prehistoric communities of Near East.
