He studied mainly with Wolfgang Rihm, Sandeep Bhagwati (xomposition) and Peter-Michael Riehm (music theory). Besides his research in Middle Eastern maqam music, he has specialized in microtonal harmony and anthropological approaches to music and society. He has been working at the Karlsruhe University of Music in Germany, the Anatolian University of Eskişehir in Turkey (as a lecturer), and the Ankara State Conservatory (in the rare position of a foreign expert in contemporary music). His Ph.D. thesis deals with the novel tuning system for the Middle Eastern qanun that was conceived by the French virtuoso and founder of the "Al-Kindi" Ensemble, Julien Jalâl Ed-Dine Weiss. The doctoral jury was composed of Prof. Ruhi Ayangil and Prof. Dr. Şehvar Beşirorğlu, among others.
